A volunteers story…
Jan Harbidge visited Camphill Blair Drummond during one of our open days last Summer, when we were showing people our new houses and workshops. She was ‘bowled over’ by the visit. Jan was “so impressed and loved the idea of working in the gardens”. Jan chatted to a resident during the visit about the garden and cutting the grass and mentioned that she couldn’t use a petrol mower because it was difficult to start; the resident replied “Come to me and I’ll help you”. Jan decided that she wanted to find out more about volunteering at Camphill Blair Drummond and started as a volunteer helping in the workshops in November 2013.
Jan really enjoys volunteering at Camphill Blair Drummond. She “feels useful, and enjoys meeting residents and other members of the community”. Jan thinks there is a “lovely atmosphere at Camphill Blair Drummond, and that it’s a very caring place”. Her favourite moment so far has beenattending the Christmas Carol Service at Blair Drummond Hall and “seeing the smiles on everyone’s face and everybody enjoying participating!”
