Jan Bolam – Respite Sitter, Driver and Admin Volunteer
"When I retired from working as a physiotherapist at the Friarage, I wanted to do something that would help other people. Herriot was an obvious choice as it is a local charity serving the community in which I used to work and taking patients to the Friarage helps to keep me in touch with my old work place.
I enjoy sitting with patients as you meet some very interesting people who are so grateful for the help we provide. Working as an admin volunteer allows me to interact with the service co-ordinators who book me for sitting and driving.
I hope people feel that I make a difference to their lives, they certainly do in mine!"
