We’re sharing stories about amazing volunteers giving their time in Milton Keynes. This spotlight is on Sandy Cluff, who is volunteering at MK Snap.
Sandy volunteers at MK Snap every week in their art sessions. In these sessions she Sandy helps and supports learners who have learning disabilities. Sandy comes in early and sets up all the art materials and tools needed for the session, when learners start arriving Sandy gets them settled into at activity and supports learners one to one. Sandy has done this for years and years, never misses a session and nothing is ever too much or difficult. The learners at MK Snap respect and love all that Sandy does for them as well as all she does for the staff. Teaching with Sandy is a pleasure because of her enthusiasm and interest in everything she does.
Sandy also volunteers for National disability day, where she face paints.
Sandy is a worthy nominee because she has gone above and beyond to ensure learners feel they have achieved something when with her. She inspires others through her love of art, her subject knowledge and passion of art is infectious. She has helped raise money for Snap, through supporting the learners with their paintings, which they have gone on to sell, which raises money for Snap. Sandy has been such a big support for Snap. She has helped develop the overall standard of our artwork, but more importantly helped people with learning disabilities find a passion and a talent for art. She could not be thanked enough for all she has done, and nominating her for this award is a small way of thanking her for everything.
