Just returned from volunteering looking after 0 years to 2 years 

I have an induction next week for vountary work for our local wildlife charity. Fingers crossed i'm accepted :-) 

 I voluntarily started raising money for special care baby is when I was 16. At the age of 18 I went on a sponsored walk which I had organised and had over 150 walkers with me went from Sheffield to Leeds general infirmary where I was transferred  because they didn't have the life-saving equipment available in Sheffield. Over the course of two years I raised over £21,500  for the two hospitals. In addition to that I was able to secure an incubator which is now in situ in Leeds general infirmary. I loved those two years and it inspired me to do several other small acts for charity which I do on a regular basis as I enjoy it and I know that the money is generated will be going to a worthwhile cause and this is the only satisfaction I need. 

I used to volunteer for Cheshire Conservation Society renovating old gardens, exposing mosaics, etc.
