"Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something" Max Lucado
Volunteering is an opportunity of using your existing talents, learn new skills and support a good cause. This I learnt when visiting Brentwood's theatre last week and met so many representatives from various organisations. The day was organised by Brentwood Council for Voluntary Service and it was lovely to meet so many interesting people, including Diane Fairchild, Co-ordinator, Arsen Poghosyan, Funding & Information Officer and a host of other delegates who outlined their special worthy projects.
It was enjoyable chatting with the folk from Futures in Mind, a service designed for people from across Essex who are looking for support with recovery from mental health problems linked as they are with Mind. Do pay a visit to firstname.lastname@example.org and learn more.
I was also delighted to meet a super informative representative from St Francis Hospice, email Mail@sfh.org.uk in Romford, Essex whose work with patients is incomparable.
Riding for the Disabled has always been a wonderful charity, giving confidence for physically impaired and of course, with children.
I also met Allison Watson, Co-founder of Ring Chromosome 20 Syndrome, a rare epilepsy syndrome, affecting a very small number of people worldwide, but nevertheless needing voluntary help in contributing time, information and money for vital research.
