“They give up their free time to help peo­ple in their com­mu­nity, who may be go­ing through prob­lems, to get back on their feet.

“Vol­un­teer­ing is for ev­ery­body and it brings its own re­wards. It’s a great way to meet peo­ple and learn skills.

“If you’d like to help peo­ple in our area and can spare a few hours, we’d love to hear from you.”
