Putting your hand up
PROMPT May 6th

Write about a community service or volunteer experience you’ve had in your life that made an impact on you.

I think that everyone should put their hand up and volunteer at least once in their lives. I’ve not been a prolific volunteer, but have throughout my life tried to do a bit here and there. Depending on different stages of life I’ve volunteered at school fetes, tuck shops and school excursions.
Later there was a time I used to pick up oldies and take them to appointments.
But the one that had the most impact, and did the longest, was for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. It’s a sort of ‘make a wish come true’ for terminally ill children.
That really made an impact seeing brave kids dealing with things they should never have to deal with.
