    I don't know. but i have 2 oxfams, a banardos, a claire's hospice (local charity i think) and a roy castle cancer reseacrh shop actually on my road. so i'm thinking one of them could use me for an afternoon a week or something. I have nothing more worthwhile to do with my time. it's shop experience which is always good, and well it'll give me a warm fuzzy feeling :p:

    are you sure that warm fuzzy feeling isnt just something to with the smell and allthe mothballs they have in them shops? I do a soup run occasionally with my church. I find it amazing that all the young people out trying to get you to sign up your credit card get paid to do that ( i never realised this till one of them told me :P)

    I do volunteer work for the Samaritans. It's only three hours a week. Not finished my training yet so all I do is sit whilst people talk about confidentiality and the way to take suicidal phone calls, etc. At the moment it's not so bad, but whe I get to answer all the suicidal calls I don't know whether or not I'll still be thinking it's OK.

    Looks great on a CV though on a positive note!

    Last December I sent presents out to European children for Christmas and encouraged others to do so. I will also do dancing for charity.

    Other than that I sponsor a child in Nepal.
