Peishan tells us about her time on the Cocktails project:
“I had just moved to London a few years ago and was looking for a way to contribute to my new community, so I started volunteering at 20/26 Mildmay. I really like the idea of intergenerational bonding over drinks, and its flexibility meant I was able to volunteer monthly despite busy work/life commitments. It has turned out to enrich my life in a myriad of ways.
I’ve learnt so much from the ladies I regularly chat with, how the country and their lives were like back in the days, which enables me to gather an insight into their current situation. They also have a great (filthy) sense of humour and taught me how to play a mean game of dominoes.”
Thank you Peishan, for your participation on Cocktails!
