Volunteer Vault #14

Updated: Feb 19

In Volunteer Vault #15, we hear from Jenna (below left), who tells us more about her match with Tahli (below right).

- How long have you been volunteering with Gig Buddies?


Tahli and I actually celebrated our three year anniversary just last weekend!

- Is Gig Buddies your first volunteering role?


Yes and no. It's my first long term volunteering role, but I have done days here and there at other places.

- Why do you volunteer with Gig Buddies?


Because it feels so damn good. Being able to have a positive impact on someone's life - is there anything better? And what a way to volunteer, I mean, you literally just get to have fun with a friend.


It's a win win if you ask me. 


- How would you describe your volunteering experience with Gig Buddies?


I can sum it up in one word: Incredible. 


- Tell us about some of the highlights from your time volunteering with Gig Buddies?


Honestly, every time Tahli and I hang out it's a highlight.

To name a few though, going to our first Swans game together (mad Swans’ fans the pair of us); Jack Johnson at the Opera House; sharing the news I was pregnant with Tahli right before we did No Lights No Lycra; hyperkarting and loving it so much we strapped in and went for another spin; even our 3 year anniversary just gone we went to Symbio Wildlife Park and Scarborough Pub with my family.


- What would you say to someone reading this who is thinking about volunteering with Gig Buddies?


Dive in head first. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain.

 

"I can sum it up in one word: Incredible"


Three years together is a great achievement. Congratulations to you and Tahli, and thank you for sharing your story.


And we’d also like to thank the others who took the time to share their testimonies in 2023: Rachel, Lisa, Andy, Pat, Mark, Sarah, Christian and Liam. You've all provided perfect examples about the mutual benefits that come with being a volunteer with Gig Buddies.
