ANY gesture of goodwill can have a positive effect that ripples throughout a community. Helping any less fortunate than ourselves not only benefits the individual but is also known to boost one’s sense of purpose.

Choosing to identify and empathise with the powerless and helping to improve people’s circumstances even just a little can inspire others to follow. Care homes can often be overlooked, yet there are many that would welcome any support you could offer.

This is an environment where your input and time could make a substantial difference to people who would really appreciate it…
