David was a volunteer at Now! Charity and our resident art expert!

He attended our weekly Splash of Colour workshops, producing brilliant pieces which are often on display around our office! Art developed into a passion for David, he credits it with being like a therapy for him and a way of keeping his mind busy.

Before he met us, David was withdrawn and spent most of his time at home. Once he started coming to the workshops he became more confident and, although naturally a quiet person, he found the atmosphere around the place to be relaxed and informal, he now feels more comfortable opening up to new people.

David came such a long way and he continues to volunteers for us. Every Friday afternoon, he can be seen doing a wide variety of jobs around our sites and his work ethic is a credit to him. He is undoubtedly a valued member of the team.

David says:

“Now! Charity has given me back my self-worth. It has given me the opportunity to meet new people and provided a platform to develop and share my creative skills. Being able to volunteer for the charity has given me a feeling of immense satisfaction and I am delighted to be able to do something worthwhile.”
