Ian Calderbank likes keeping busy on the furniture collection and delivery van which gets out and about in the community across Chorley.
He said: “I retired from work as a civil engineer on December 31st after an incredibly busy month – then I went to the opposite extreme in January, with lots of time on my hands. January isn’t a good month to start retirement – you can’t even get out for a walk half the time because of the horrible weather! I had already decided to do some voluntary work but by chance then I saw the ad in the window of the furniture shop and I thought ‘why not?’
“I spend most of the time out and about on the van collecting and delivering furniture and I prefer that to being in the shop, although there are times when I wonder about this – for example when trying to manoeuvre a heavy sofa through a small door or up a flight of stairs! On the upside. I do get to see some interesting properties. I’m quite handy too so I’ve been able to help with items that need fixing, or putting together or taking down. and doing odd repairs around the shop. It’s nice to be able to do something useful and when the takings are rung up at the end of the day, it’s satisfying to know that we’ve made a contribution.
“Prior to this I was a St Catherine’s Hospice lottery member, but had no personal connection other than as a member of the hospice lottery. I’ve learned more about it over the years and it feels good to support them – they rely on volunteers like the team here at the shop and I’m glad to be able to do my bit. From time to time, customers / donors tell us of their personal experiences of the hospice and without exception, they are full of praise for the care given to their loved ones. At times like these, it feels good to think that we’ve played a part.
