A volunteer’s poem from Liz
June 3, 2020
It’s great to hear that volunteers find working with us so rewarding.
Here’s a wonderful poem from Liz Masshedar, one of our volunteers at our Peterlee office.
I retired at 60, so what should I do?
The sun, it was shining, the sky was so blue.
I travelled abroad, I sat on the beach.
Anything’s better than having to teach!
My former Headmaster said “Try C.A.B
It’s very rewarding.” I said I would see.
I learned about benefits, housing and work.
It’s very demanding, but I didn’t shirk!
I met lots of people, I helped quite a few.
I sorted their problems, got thank-you cards, too.
I’ve wonderful colleagues, who’ll always help out.
I know I can ask them when I am in doubt.
I’ve worked there for 9 years, I’ve made lots of friends.
And can’t wait to see them, when this lockdown ends! 😀
