My volunteering journey has begun!
One of my ’50 things to do’ is to do 50 hours of voluntary work and, tonight, that journey has begun! I’ve spent the evening helping out a youth club for teenagers with severe learning difficulties and I was made to feel so welcome. The staff were really kind and the young people were fabulous, each with their personalities clearly shining through. But the one and only tough bit of the night was deliberately losing a game of Pairs! There was a massive conflict between my inner drive to conquer and claim victory…..and the need to play nicely with the kids! Apparently they’re good at playing Uno. I might need to get some practice in during the next 7 days! So, 2.5 hours done…..a cool night for all!
