#HCAVolunteers – Wendy
Volunteer Wendy joined Holborn Community Association in June 2019 helping out with our Thursday Creative Communication group. She shares with us how it’s been helping to run art activities online and what she gets out of volunteering with HCA
“I’ve been helping out with the creative communication group since last year. It’s called ‘creative communication’ because we do different types of art activities that encourage children with communicational difficulties to interact with others by creating art using a variety of fun materials.
During lockdown, we have been running our sessions online using zoom. Transferring the sessions online is difficult for some taking part, but others can also be more engaged.
The marble run is one of my favourite activities and it suits perfectly to the lockdown as we need to save the toilet rolls. It was amazing to see the children pile up books and bean cans, and join the toilet paper rolls to make a large marble run.
It can be a challenge coming up with interesting things to talk about when you just have been at home and working during the sessions.
