It is often said that our wellbeing can be enhanced by a sense of purpose in society and being able to contribute to our local community. Volunteering is recognised as an activity that can help to improve your wellbeing and lifestyle.
There is a huge variety of volunteering opportunities on offer across the county to suit all ages and abilities, some of which require a regular commitment starting from as little as half an hour each week, whilst others support one-off projects or events for a fixed time period.
I help with the homework club because I believe education is vitally important. It's a tough world for our young people. They are at school all day and then come home to study well into the evening and if they're willing to work that hard, we owe it to them to help in any way we can."
