So every week I volunteer at a charity shop called Barnardoes. I love 'working' there and i think it's a great thing that anybody can do! It's really easy to find out about different ways you can volunteer, you could just use google for your local area or just pop into the charity shops - that's what I did!
So if you have a spare couple of hours in your week or weekend - i only do two hours on a Saturday, but every little helps(!) - find out about volunteering and see if you can! :-)
