What our volunteers have to say...
“It has meant true friendship - learning about a different culture - celebrating being human - sharing creativity together” Denis
“Having spent many years myself in a different culture I always treasured opportunities to get to know people from that society and share ideas, knowledge, friendship and general life outlook. SSR has given me the chance to return that. How else would I ever have got to know these amazing people.
We’re often miles apart in beliefs and lifestyles but what matters is seeing people as themselves and sharing laughter and concerns and common humanity.
SSR makes these things possible” Lorna
