Hi I'm Noreen, when I was a nursery assistant I realised that the Asian women and children had nowhere to go, so I started the Noor Women group about 2 and half years ago. The group was formed for the health and Wellbeing of women and children, and to bring the community together. We meet every Monday at Arleston Community centre in term time and we do lots of activities walking, yoga and other physical activities, we also have English speaking courses. The group has over 40 members now.
I also volunteer at the Equal Centre next to the Regent Street Mosk, to give English lessons for women and support their education.
I have also volunteered as a translator to support families from the community.
Volunteering gives me a nice feeling. “When someone says thank you, it’s out of this world”
