My name is Parveen.
I have just celebrated my silver wedding anniversary, I have no children but I’m an aunty to seven nieces and nephews.
After watching the Three Girls Drama I have admired Maggie Oliver from afar, so when the volunteering role presented itself I jumped at the chance to be part of this fantastic team.
My main job is in recruitment but since 2017 I have volunteered for the Samaritans which gives me an insight into the power of “listening” and just being there for people, which I think really matters.
This foundation helping survivors turn there ‘pain into power’, is amazing and I am proud to have been chosen to be part of it.
In my spare time I go to the gym regularly and enjoy long walks, also socialising with friends.
