Something borrowed, something blue

wedding c archetypeA friend of mine, Heather, wants to get into volunteering so she asked me if I had any ideas. Our conversation went a bit like this:

Me: "What kind of thing do you want to do?"

Heather: "Really not sure. Maybe something outdoors - to start with?"

Me: "Cool, there's loads of places that do that- I'll have a look into it."

Whilst I was looking Fran (another TimeBank blogger) happened to mention that the National Trust do loads of volunteering opportunities, things that you might not expect them to do. I had a look - Heather is sorted. I've found her some gardening but I'm definitely going to tell her about the other opportunities - from being a room or events guide to a learning assistant. And even, get this, a wedding steward.  Who'd have thought?

Heather, if you're reading this - you asked for some gardening and I threw in a wedding!
