One of my earliest trips with Yellow Submarine was to Wales in 2010 with Lin & Michelle. We had a great time at a local barn dance, having a coastal walk and making food together. One day we cooked jacket potatoes.
Lin doesn’t get to do much cooking at home. She was so proud of herself when she had grated lots of cheese for our potatoes with a helping hand from Michelle. This is what Yellow Submarine is all about- people helping each other to get confidence and pleasure from even the small things in life.
As a volunteer I didn’t have to do anything scary- just make sure they were safe and happy and then the experiences just happened in ways you can’t always plan- it was very rewarding!
