Team Volunteer

I started volunteering over a year ago after my daughter became involved in Soapbox at The Turnpike. The community, staff and volunteers have helped by social isolation as I am not originally from the UK. I also strongly believe that art and access to nurturing and encouraging art in our local community is so important. Seeing people in the gallery in awe, in the middle of Leigh makes my day when I volunteer. I also made beautiful friends I would have never met otherwise. I am privileged to be part of such and important organisation, even as a volunteer.

I am from Leigh and have been involved with The Turnpike as a visitor, a mum who enjoys the activities on offer with my daughter, and now as a volunteer. I love contributing to my local community and meeting people who have a shared passion for the arts. I like drawing, sewing and cooking.

I live in Lowton and enjoy making my own music and digital art. I recently left a physics degree in the hope of engaging locally with community organisations and the arts. Volunteering for an independent organisation like The Turnpike has been a great way of doing just that.

I am from Wigan and I like volunteering at The Turnpike because it's a great place to see different people coming and going to look at the different amazing art. I have always been fascinated with history and art. I also like to go to the cinema with family and friends.
