We’re lucky to have a group of regular walkers who all come from the same workplace (Age UK Bolton) to walk the dogs once a week. They’ve been coming for about four months now and we asked a couple of them why they volunteer?
Heather: ‘I found out about Makants through a colleague at work, I adore animals especially sighthounds so was wondering how I could incorporate volunteering into the working day. When we realised the walks were at lunchtime we decided to come down and give it a try. I find it really helps to bring our team together and we all enjoy walking in a relaxed environment leaving our work stress behind for an hour or so. I must admit though that I fall in love with a new dog every time I visit!'
Lucy ‘I have been volunteering about three months now and was invited to come along by my colleagues. I enjoy the break from the office and you can’t beat getting out in the fresh air. I’d love a dog of my own but my current situation doesn’t enable me to have one, this is the very next best thing!'
**We send our thanks to the whole team at Age UK Bolton for all you do for Makants!**
