Everyone should try and do some volunteer work if they are able to. Regular readers of my blog will know that I am not fit work.
I try to do some volunteer work once a week. I help prepare lunch for pensioners at a lunch club. I do this because I feel guilty claiming benefits. Volunteering can give a person a sense of pride. Again as I have said in previous posts its passing on skills to help other people.
I wish I could do more volunteer work but I get tired quickly. I am happy if I know I have made one persons day. I may not be be able to have a full time job but doing voluntary work gives me something to do. There are plenty of opportunities for people to do some good in their commuities. So go out there and try to do it!
