I volunteer one morning a week in the Katoomba Op Shop. Principally to support them in their endeavours to raise funds to provide services to people who have or have had cancer. I work with a great bunch of people, and my morning rolls by, generally with much laughter.

Volunteering at Katoomba Op Shop has been a great experience and hopefully, my participation helps make a difference to cancer patients and their families. Also, I'm working with a lovely group of people with whom I share a great camaraderie and lots of laughs. It actually makes working fun.

Irene Reid

I have been involved with CWS for many years working with other volunteers. Each group has a special bond of support, care and respect for one another, which also flows through on the shop floor where we regularly support clients and their needs, be it a sympathetic ear, a chat and a smile.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
