Bio Coming Soon!
- Session Worker
At the time of writing this, I have only been working for the Umbrella Centre for a month - so everything is still new to me! Everyone has been very friendly and welcoming, and it is a very nice atmosphere to work in. In my short time here I have helped on the computers, learned how to play a few different card games, brought in my guitar for a sing-along, and made copious amounts of tea and coffee for the members!
In September of 2014, I came to the Umbrella Centre in William Street, Herne Bay and about a year later I was lucky enough to be asked if I wanted to become a cleaner! During my time we have changed premises and seen lots of different services, but we have been lucky enough to receive funding from The National Lottery to get us to where we are today. I have been here about 6 years and love it!
