Volunteering. Todays supervision

so i think i’ve mentioned that i volunteer for the basement club a couple hours a week. on thursday afternoons from 2 until 4. i do admin work, answering the phone, data entry, etc. and i love it.
today i had my monthly supervision. colette who is my supervisor said some really nice things to me about my work. she said how much the staff valued my contribution. she said i was very consistent and reliable. and she also told me how happy she was with my work. it was so lovely to hear all that. i was really grateful and felt really appreciated.
so i decided to increase my volunteering hours. i’ll be doing a monthly newsletter starting in november. the newsletter will contain things that are going on in the basement club, and also some stuff that is going on in the local community. i will need some time to get it all typed up and stuff so i said i’d come in on friday mornings from 11 until 1 to do that. i enjoy the work i do and so increasing my hours seemed like a very good idea.
i have 18 hours completed now and once i hit 30 hours colette said i’d be entitled to a reference from her. obviously i dont plan on stopping at 30 hours though.
we talked today about getting another member to help me with the data input. a couple of members have done it in the past but a lot of them make mistakes, they dont take it seriously, and then the sign in sheets end up being done wrong. colette said it isnt me because last week she sat with me and watched me do them and she said my work is perfect and that it is the members who are helping me that are not doing it right.
so i did up a poster today asking for help. colette will train the member up before they start helping me. i asked for someone for 1 hour a week on friday mornings. hoping a few members put their names forward and offer to help me out.
