Stuart Garwood – Volunteer Oxygen Operator

 

I have been a volunteer oxygen operator for the past 7 months.  My family has been involved with the Centre for the past 20 years as my son Rob had primary progressive MS and came to the old Centre for physiotherapy.  After I retired I decided that I wanted to give something back and help the Centre and volunteering was one way I could do that.

It’s such an amazing atmosphere here.  I chose Oxygen as I have a technical background and the chamber is a bit of a big boys’ toy so it’s good fun.  I also do the occasional collection days at Wycombe Wanderers too.

I get huge self-satisfaction knowing that what I do can help people and I wanted to give back to the Centre because of the support we have had for the last 20 years.  I also help out at some of the events, which are a lot of fun.

I would recommend volunteering at the Centre to everyone.  I get a real kick out of it and everyone is friendly.  No matter what they are going through nobody moans and they always have a smile on their face.  It’s a really great place to work.
