Volunteering……. My first thought was here’s my chance to do something useful. I am not a stranger to volunteering, having been involved in Leeds Teaching Hospitals, Donisthorpe and the LJWB for many years. Lockdown, however put a stop to all of them. I was therefore delighted to help when the call went out for volunteer shoppers for LJWB service users who are generally high risk because of age, stuck at home, and have no one else to shop for them. I knew I was making a success of it when a few of the service users asked for me by name, and I now have my regulars! My knowledge of the shelf layout of Sainsbury’s, Marks and Spencers, and Gourmet has increased immeasurably! I am rewarded with the “feel good factor” every time I help someone in need.
