Helping others while helping yourself

Winston Churchill once said that “you make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give”. This sums up what volunteering is all about. It is about doing something that benefits the local community and makes a difference to peoples lives.

If you want to contribute and make a real difference in our community then volunteering could be the way for you to do this. Not only will it benefit the people and organisations in our area, but you too could benefit by trying something different or learning a new skill.
