Laurence’s story

Laurence volunteering in Norwood's fundraising team

Laurence took early retirement and moved from Edinburgh to Bushey to be near his grandchildren.

He wanted to volunteer with a Jewish charity in an office environment. He often passed Broadway House and decided that he would like to volunteer there, as it was close to home.

So in March 2011, Laurence joined the Fundraising team helping with “Celebrate”. Celebrate enables people to mark a birthday, anniversary or any special event by making a donation to Norwood to honour the occasion.

Laurence comes in twice a week to help out with the admin and at busier times, he gets involved with other events, such as the Property Lunch and the Annual Dinner.

Now that I have time on my hands, I can give something back to the community. But in addition, it is a fun and enjoyable environment to be working in
