Another volunteer gets a job
I started volunteering at Positive Activities In December 2016. I had been a ‘stay at home mum’ for 10 years so I was looking to gain some work experience in a busy workplace to help me gain employment. Being at Positive Activities has given me not only experience but has increased my confidence which I have used in a recent interview that has led to a permanent Job being offered to me. I’m very grateful for being given an opportunity to make new friendships and working relationships. I have asked to be kept informed of any further events that I may be able to help and volunteer in the future. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience here, by Hannah Tucker
MAP visits Green Futures
Members of the Man Alive Project recently visited Green Futures on Bradley Road, Grimsby as part of their weekly Wednesday meetings. They were welcomed by Carol Prendergast, Chief Executive Officer and the Senior Horticulturist Elaine Atkinson. The visit had a twofold purpose, one to seek guidance and expert information to help Man Alive prepare for projects within the grounds of Centre4, and to find out more about volunteering for Green Futures on their new after school and holiday club projects with Oasis Academy, Nunsthorpe.
Man Alive members, who meet at 10am on Wednesdays at Centre 4 on Wootton Road, are keen to get involved with these exciting new Green Futures projects that include children and wider family members. The projects will encourage communication, personal development, and community spirit with the ultimate aim to enter the ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ awards.
Members of the Man Alive group enjoyed their visit and were surprised to find that the area known as the Willow Woodland has a hide for bird watching.
If you are a man aged over 50 and interested in joining the Man Alive group then contact Positive Activities on 01472 236677 or email@example.com or if you want to find out more about the work of Green Futures you can contact them on 01472 870609

I came to Positive Activities uncertain as to what to expect. I was met with a friendly and supportive team who helped me boost my self-confidence and my confidence around others, as well as help me explore new skills and reinforce old ones. I was running the charity’s social media campaign, during this time I have helped increase the reach of Positive Activities’ social media posts and accounts. I have also gained the experience of working within an office based environment.
I have been lucky enough to have gained employment working as a Chemistry Lab Assistant with Eurofins. This is an area I have been aspiring to enter. This path with hopefully lead to successful career as a Chemistry Analyst.
Thank you to the whole Positive Activities team for all their support over the last couple of months.
‘Working with the Positive Activities team helped boost my confidence and ability to work on projects using the latest software, developing the skills I need to achieve my ambitions. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming, enabling me to understand my responsibilities and supporting me with tasks when I needed it. I learnt valuable communication and team working skills and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being part of such a great charity. Thanks to everyone involved I was soon able to secure a job as an architectural assistant, putting all of my new strengths into practice and taking with me everything I learnt.’
