I'm currently between jobs on 'gardening leave' with too much time on my hands. I'd like to put a bit back into the community. Does anyone know of any websites/avenues I could pursue to fill my time and help out?

Fair play mate. In the short term I’d definitely suggest NHS volunteering/GoodSam


They are crying out for more volunteers in certain cities to help the final vaccination push so I’m sure any assistance would be appreciated

All the best !

I work for the air ambulance service. Would love to discuss opportunities with you.

I've used this and done various voluntary work from here. You apply, they contact you and then you go and have a chat. You can choose what type of things you like to do to help filter opportunities in your area.

Got a few odd jobs need doing if you're free and the wife could do with a good sorting out. Cheers.
Happy to do some more odd jobs mate, but I struggle to keep up with your missus. She's a right live wire isn't she?

Anyway, bell me on 0898 696969 and I'll sort your boiler.

Please note, I'm fine with heights, but I don't like widths.

15 years ago I spent some time volunteering for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust based in Brandon. I had a great time helping to maintain their nature reserves, using different tools and mixing with older people. It was also good to discover many hidden corners of our county that I hadn't seen before.

I now volunteer coaching our local under 9s team. One of the best things I’ve ever done. Seeing new players score there first goal , the bad players getting gradually better with each game and the kids just enjoying football. Would highly recommend 👍
