In November I volunteered at a British heart foundation workshop and then feature the story in my little magazine.
I have volunteered to help police with their enquiries and bust a sex trafficking ring.that has to be good right?
I volunteered to have my grandchildren when my daughter was stuck for childcare and was trying to save money for a new house.
I give my old clothes to local charities now.
Just goes to show we can help in so many ways :0)
Last week I registered as a volunteer support person to raise funds for the BHF. On Saturday I will be going along to learn how to do CPR in their heart start programme. It’s free to do as it is a campaign to help people mend broken hearts.
The BHF are doing some amazing research into finding how the Zebra fish and other animal life can help with repairing a damaged heart.
I am really excited to be part of their fundraising process and am also covering the story to put in my magazine.
When investigating the best care home for my mum, I have found Sunrise a lovely place I would like to work.
Sunrise are private residential homes for the elderly. I would love to work there full time but as this is not possible until I have mum settled somewhere I have chosen to volunteer.
I looked up their vacancy list on their website. I have visited 2 that are most local to me and now I submitting my application this week.
I wonder how many people feel like calling the Samaritans on New years eve? I hope that people find something to look forward to for 2011 rather than stare at desperation.
I have often thought of how Id like to get back to working for a worthy cause I used to work as a volunteer supporting young pregnant mothers with no family support of homeless. Very rewarding and challenging. I have done victim support and womens refuge.Ive even served soup on Christmas day for the homeless.
This time Id like to work for a rape crisis centre ,samaritans,helping families of murder victims or adoption.
I really feel for people when they are in the throws of some horrible disaster and I often wish I could help.
