After serving some time away in prison I came out and decided to volunteer to enhance my CV. I hadn’t worked for at least 20 years due to my ducking and diving. I started volunteering for the St Giles Trust for about 18 Months working with clients in gangs. I Left that part of their Organisation and started working for their Homeless Drop in Department.

Whilst I was working for St Giles I was also Volunteering with BOB at the weekend on Portobello Road. I first started there as a Volunteer and then worked my way up to Team Leader.

I loved the way they made me feel welcome and I always felt like I was part of the Team. Linda, Chelo, Eddie, David, Tim and Aidan were always there to help and guide me whenever I needed help or support. (There are also many more people whom I have left out!) I am now a proud to be a Manager here at Ealing after being given a chance to actually work and also make my Mother so proud of me. So thanks to you all here at BOB for believing in me.
