Serving Almost half of those over 60 volunteer in some way, a recent survey revealed. For some it is an occasional few hours a week. For others it is almost like full time work but with no pay. For many it is something in between the two. Voluntary work doesn’t have to be like ‘work’. There are charities and clubs looking for officers and committee members. There are Neighbourhood Watch Schemes needing people – even to start them. And there may be openings to be a school governor, a parish councillor or even a magistrate. You don’t even need to be part of an organisation. You can just look out for needs locally – elderly people needing gardening, lifts, DIY, shopping done?
