Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”Martin Luther KING, jr
I’ve been a regular volunteer for 15 years now; I started my adventures in volunteering as a charity shop window dresser when I was just 19. In the years since I’ve been a Museum Steward and Education Officer, a Foodbank Volunteer, a Play Area Representative, a runner of playgroups, and I was once an English Civil War costumed guide that went by the name of ‘Mistress Flo’! I feel very lucky to have been a stay-at-home Mum for the past few years and although we have been money poor through most of these I have been relatively time rich and that has given me the opportunity to do something for others and the freedom to delve deeper into local volunteering opportunities. This week for the first time I volunteered for the Dorset Wildlife Trust.
