Voluntary has its ups and downs.
During my many shifts at RVS café, I'd be expected to wash up the dishes, wipe the tables clean, stock up the shelves with food and drink, empty the bins and take the refuse sacks to the bin bag disposal room. Also, would occasionally help a customer to find what it is they are looking for and to help them to their seat. The people I worked with were very friendly and supportive. Some of them liked to make fun of me due to my appearance and behaviour. This is fine though as it was all done in a friendly manner. There was a time, when it did start to grate on my nerves and I was starting to get a little depressed over the childish remarks and the pinching and poking. All is ok though as I decided to move on to other things before it could get any worse. I now do trolley service for the RVS team and this is very enjoyable indeed. I met my best friend whilst doing this and we have got along ever since we started doing this type of work. This work mostly consists of selling the food and drink around the wards on a handy four-wheeled trolley that is pushed and pulled by two people. It is a fun job to have to undertake and I have done lots of shifts where I can say I helped someone in need. Nowadays, I don't often come to the café due to other commitments in my routine. However, Whenever my busyness starts to die down, I will most likely return to managing a confectionary trolley around the hospital hallways with my best friend tagging along beside me.
Free drinks and good busy area to work in.
Was made fun of by some of the staff which can be a bit tiresome after a while.
