Interview with Mel, a Night Light Café Volunteer

by Pam Jenkinson – Night Light Café Project Worker

Mel, has been volunteering at one of our Night Light cafes since 2021. She shares with us the passion and vision of what Night Light stands for and we so appreciate the commitment and enthusiasm she gives to the café she volunteers at. I asked Mel about why she has chosen to volunteer with us at Night Light and why she feel there is a necessity for this project.

Mel – Night Light Volunteer
  1. Where did you first hear about Night Light Café? 

I contacted the Volunteer Centre Services as I was looking for volunteering with an organisation on the mental health field and they told me about this project and how brilliant it was.

An Interview with a Night Light Café Guest

by Stacey Marriott – Night Light Café Coordinator

We value all our guests who come to our Night Light cafes, whether this is for a one off visit or to come to find a weekly safe haven. I recently met up with one of our guests, Anastasia for a chat and this is what she had to tell me:

Q What’s your favourite animal and why?

I love cows, I really love a big ginger cow! I also love sloths because they are sleepy and slow like me.

Q I notice you have blue hair, tell us about that?

I thought that everyone was staring at me, so I thought I would make them stare! I dyed my hair blue and got lots of piercings.

Yes, it’s been a very difficult and dark week. You could have been excused for turning off your social media feeds altogether but, even if it’s just a welcome distraction, we have some good, local news to share.

Night Light Volunteer: Rebecca

Over the Christmas period, we put out a social media appeal to recruit some temporary volunteers to work in our Night Light Cafes, so that we would be able to remain open every day, including Christmas day. We were overwhelmed with the response we had from a range of people including teachers on their Christmas breaks, mental health social workers and therapists. Even more special for us, was that over 50% of these temporary volunteers have now asked to continue to volunteer with us throughout the year.

Rebecca, a teacher from Lincoln, is one of these incredible volunteers, who stepped up and supported us all through Christmas and has now joined one of our cafés permanently. I asked Rebecca to tell me more about her experiences volunteering with our team.
