Gail Finlen is a woman who loves numbers and is very organised.

These skills have come in handy for her volunteering at Creative Arts by Rise in Warwick.

For the past three years she has undertaken a number of different roles and helps keep the wheels in motion at Creative Arts by Rise.

Admin volunteer

Gail duties include reception, client enquiries, lunch orders, entering information into the database and collecting money. The former financial counsellor Gail said

I enjoy the interaction with the clients. It’s not dull and boring ever and there is great staff.

It saves me from going mad at home.

Gail travels from Clarkson three times a week. While it might be a long drive, she loves Rise.

She has plans to continue volunteering for as long as she can. Thanks Gail!
