Carole’s journey began when she approached Kasia from the CVSC Volunteering Team during the 25th Anniversary Event, driven by her desire to contribute to the community. After few initial bumps on the road, Kasia connected her with a wonderful team at Clwb yr Efail, Pam and Terry. Carol fitted right in and was delighted with how welcoming they made her feel, showing her around and making sure she felt confident with all her tasks. She quickly became a valued member of the team!
