My name is Margaret known as Margaret S as there are so many Margarets here. I am the only black Margaret and happily working with Open Doors for five or six years now or more and Open Doors has a wonderful spirit.
I started volunteering in the kitchen preparing meals. I look after the newcomers into Open Doors the majority of whom are ethnic minorities. It is about welcoming all people I like to tell people that Open Doors loves everyone the door is open to everyone.
From there I went on to organise trips to other places like Bridlington which was one of the best trips out we’ve had so far and now I have the privilege of running the clothes shop. Open Doors offers wonderful support to all of our clients especially the women and children all the migrant workers who are still trying to find their feet.
