Today I spent the morning down at our local Vinnies, to see if I really want to volunteer there. And yes, yes I do. I have filled in the form and will now sit by the phone waiting for the call to say that I am needed.
Many years ago I used to volunteer at our local tourist info centre and enjoyed it but apart from helping out at the Really Free Markets I haven't done any volunteering for quite a few years. I think it's time I started again and this will be an easy start. I am willing to do a whole day now and then or a half day whenever but probably don't want to commit to a whole day every week Will see what they need and then decide.
I do believe that volunteers are very important and without them a lot of community projects would not be able to function. I also know that not all of them are appreciated the way they should be and that is not good.
Do you volunteer anywhere? Please leave a comment and tell me all about it.
Hi I live in the Peel Region of WA. We grew all our vegetables during 2010 and will do the same this year but I also want to get fit enough to wander the countryside, climb big rocks and swim in
lakes and rivers.
