I am a retired English teacher who has retired from teaching but not from life, which I intend to live to the full. With all my hobbies, I'm busier now than ever with my art groups, small business and gardening.

National Volunteer Week is from Monday 21st May until Sunday the 27th of May and this year's theme is "Give a little, change a lot". It's important that volunteers be recognised for the selflessness of donating something important to us all, time and skills. Without the aid of volunteers, many not for profit organisations wouldn't be able to operate. Without volunteers, many services wouldn't be available. I had an appointment at one of our major hospitals and a volunteer showed me where to go. Later I had a coffee at the hospital cafe, which was completely run by volunteers.

To celebrate National Volunteers' Week, on the 24th May 2018, Volunteer WA is holding a Gala Dinner to recognise and honour West Australian's outstanding volunteers. This prestigious event honours the best of the best with awards over 8 categories. The dinner is held at the Hyatt Regency Perth Hotel and awards will be presented to volunteers during the evening.
