It’s easy to see why Farah Addo was crowned a “hero” by the members of Sasca.
The 34-year-old father-of-two volunteers twice-a-week at the centre on Princess Road and does his very best to support members of the Somali community needing help.
He said: “Getting the hero certificate was nice because you get recognition for the support you have given. There are a lot of elderly people who come into Sasca who can’t speak English and we support them with things like calling housing. Some of them don’t know how to use a computer so we give help with that too.
“We also make calls for them to help them make an appointment, for example. Anything that they need help with we can usually provide. We provide free phone calls and they get a warm welcome!”
