Volunteering Story of the Month - Ruth and Shah

We started volunteering at Chickenshed Theatre when our daughter Monica joined at the age of 9 years old.  Shortly afterwards our son, Saman also joined and, 25 years later, we continue to be involved in and support the amazing work of Chickenshed.

We have enjoyed making friends along the way, giving our time to such an amazing cause and place, based on all-inclusive values.  

Our children and now grandson, Chrystian, have enjoyed and continue to enjoy many years of being part of a place where they have increased in confidence, feel comfortable in their own skin and being part of an extended family.

We have been fortunate to organise successful salsa nights to fundraise and have volunteered in many roles such as admin, front of house, as first aiders, assistant duty managers and so on.  We have been lucky be able to play a small part in helping Chickenshed to grow and continue their exceptional work.

Chickenshed will always hold a place in our hearts, from the wonderful staff, all the families we've met, the joys it's brought our family, and watching the wonderful work of all the members through shows and cabarets.
