I've had a very productive day - after my downer day yesterday i decided to look into volunteer work and......

I have just applied for 3 volunteer positions; one at dartmoor prison helping prisoners record/write/act out short stories for them to be able to send to their kids.

Another being an appropriate adult for those who are considered youths that have no representation when arrested so an appropriate adult is called in in order to make sure they recieve and understand all their rights etc.

And the final one being working with offenders to help them identify the issues causing them problems and then putting them in touch with the relevant agencies.

:fingerscrossed: i hear back from one of them! The applications say should hear within 10 working days!!! :D

HI Summer

Well done!!! Fair play to you... not many people would offer their time...

I am sure whatever you do, it will be well rewarded in so many ways... I have done some before and it's wonderful what you get back...

Best of luck with the volunteer work!

summergurl thank you so much for posting this, make me think. my girls are at school from 9-3, only so much cleaning the house and exercise i can do. not going back to my full time job till ive lost the weight and 100% fit (gym & boxercise instructor) and hubby likes to earn the money, suits me for now.
so was thinking i should volunteer too. looked on line at childrens charities and applied to do counselling for the nspcc. i adore kids and to think i could help just 1 of them makes me happy.
so thx hun, probably wouldnt of thought of it without reading ur post.

Good for you, any of those projects would be lucky to have a personality like you working with them. Fingers crossed here for you!

Aww Tanya, haven't been able to get online so didn't know you had a downer. Sorry to hear that but glad you've picked yourself up again.

What fantastic volunteer posts! They will be all so rewarding and satisfying. It's great that you're giving something back. I'd love to have the time to do something like that. Well done sweetie! I hope you hear back before 10 days as I'd be bursting to know if I've been accepted or not!

Good luck! *fingers crossed*

*fingers crossed* Not crossing the toes as I get the cramp and it takes me ages to get them uncrossed again!

You'll probably be offered them all as I expect they're crying out for great people like yourself.
