Kevin Doonan – Shopping Support Volunteer

Before volunteering I was working as a barista in Belfast City Airport.  My plan was to save enough money to pay to do a Masters in Psychology which I’m happy to say I’ve been accepted to study with Queens University.  My long term goal is to work toward becoming a clinical psychologist.

I always believe it is important to give back when I can.  I lost my mum to cancer two years ago and was inspired by Marie Curie nurses.  Since then I have worked and volunteered with Marie Curie UK on a few different campaigns such as Scrap the Six Months and the 2019 Great Daffodil Appeal.  When the lockdown was declared and eventually the trust was looking for volunteers, I thought that I should find away to give back during this time.  This is when I came across Volunteer Now and applied.

Basically my role consists of food shopping for the most vulnerable individuals who can’t leave their homes.  I have picked up groceries and topped up electric and gas cards for older people in my local area.
