Spotlight on: Volunteering

Volunteering is at the heart of the Scottish CAB Service, with more than 2,000 people giving their invaluable time and experience each week to keep Scotland's bureaux running.  We rely on volunteers not only to deliver advice and information, but also to help manage each CAB (each is an independent charity) and provide support services such as administration, IT, marketing and promotion and fundraising activities.  

What about you - have you thought about volunteering in your local bureau?
