Salvation Army cooking for the homeless…St Swithun’s volunteer group. Volunteer work at the Joy cafe Churchill Gardens. Give up some of your time for others….

My own experience of volunteering has helped me. I’ve cooked for the recovery courses who provide meals for over 100 people at each sitting and also given time to assist at the Joy cafe and cook lunchtime meals for the Boscombe homeless at the Salvation Army. The churches run many projects where volunteers (whether church members or not) are welcome to help. Take a look and see what difference you can make in your community.
