Volunteering gives a greater appreciation of life… by Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria volunteer, Shobhna Pandey
‘I love to give something back to the community because it allows me to meet new people, provides a sense of accomplishment and makes me happy.
I have been volunteering for almost 8 years - because of my busy schedule I started with temporary event contribution, which gave me confidence that I could do more committed volunteering.
I met lovely Vicky in 2015 through Miriam at Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria. She has become a good friend of mine and I look forward to our fortnightly walks on Saturdays. We meet around 11am and go for one hour walk to the Maribyrnong River at Highpoint - it is around 5 km, but our never-ending conversation makes it feel very less.
I love Vicky’s positive attitude, she is very understanding and open minded. She inspires me to enjoy life. After our walk when I come home I feel more energetic and a sense of achievement which helps me to finish my weekend chores much faster.
Vicky herself is involved in volunteering. I believe volunteering is a circle: ‘more you give, more you get’. It does not matter how busy you are or what situation you are in - volunteering is always beneficial. It gives an opportunity to broaden a perspective and appreciate life more in general.
Thank you, Miriam for believing in me and giving me chance to meet Vicky. I am hoping to continue my walk with Vicky for many, many years…
