Reassured

I got an email today from Age UK, co-incidentally after yesterday’s blog.

The message was clearly directed at all volunteers, so presumably I am “on their list”, so I suppose I am reassured by that.

I do find it a bit strange that they didn’t contact me (it could even have been a nothing email, just something as a pretext) to let me know that the application process was complete, and that they were just waiting for someone suitable to get in touch (I told them that I’d ideally like to befriend someone within a short distance of my house. There are lots of elderly people in this village.)

Ironically, the person they did contact me about lives too far away for me to be able to help.

Author: Stroke Survivor UK

Formerly, designed and developed IT systems for banks, but had a stroke in 2016, aged pre-50! I have returned to developing from home, but some of my time is also spent volunteering with the UK charities Age UK (www.ageuk.org.uk) and the [UK] Stroke Association (www.stroke.org.uk). I created this account with the alias "sca11y" but have since aligned it with the name of my blog.
