    I am proud to be a volunteer at Bolton CVS. Volunteering is often a hidden benefit to the local community, country or the world. But with each person that is helped or each volunteer that gains from volunteering the value is something that when actually tallied makes such a huge contribution in general.

    At first I did not know what volunteering meant, I mean doing something for no financial gain? Just because you have an interest or passion in it? This at first was something I thought did not exist widely and now I cannot see my life without some form of volunteering in it. The people I have met through volunteering and the joy that I have experienced is something that will live with me for life.
