Why DRC's 25th Birthday is important to me...


Hi I’m Linda (although most here know me as the gaffer!) and I currently volunteer for the Disability Resource Centre. I’ve been involved with the organisation for 5 years. When the centre in Kitts Green opened I was asked if I’d like to come down and get involved and I’ve been here ever since. I initially attended the coffee morning, and then I became a mentor for the DRC, now I look after the reception on a Tuesday and run the coffee morning on a Wednesday.
