Why did you start volunteering?

I wanted to do something after having been a Guide Leader for 35 years here in Gladstone.

I was always interested in the organisations and after leaving Guides I had the time to volunteer.

What is your favourite thing about volunteering?

Meeting new friends and doing things that I am interested in. I have a lot of fun with the people I meet there.

Go ahead and join anything that you are interested in. It expands your knowledge and makes you a more fulfilled person. Groups are always looking for volunteers and you will get a lot of enjoyment out of helping others.
