  • Vollie of the month – October 2020

Hardworking and happy to help

Yuyu started volunteering at the Co-op in January 2020 when she learnt about it from the membership form. Her favourite aspect of volunteering is feeling like part of the team while also having the autonomy of a vollie. The practising nurse loves to meet new people and share her knowledge of different foods. Yuyu says since starting to volunteer at the Co-op she’s learnt how to observe when a customer needs help and lend a hand. Her favourite food is all things veg and her advice to people wanting to give volunteering a go is: “Just do it! It’s so worthwhile.” Thanks Yuyu!
