Good Citizen Points

 
 Before I start I have to say I feel a kind of a bit like I'm boosting with this post, yano the whole 'look at me I did charity work, give me the crown jewels and an OBE' - well, I can honestly say this is not what its about, I simply wanted to write about how much fun I had and keep it on this blog as a little memory for the future!
On Saturday I went to a village not too far from where I live and helped out with a local charity called 'Awyr Las' welsh for 'Blue Sky' - its a cancer charity which helps fund better healthcare in North Wales. As my mum works on the cancer ward in our local hospital, she works closely with the people who run this charity, so when she mentioned that an event was being held and they needed volunteers, I thought it would be a great thing to do.
As my granddad died of cancer a few years back, I really felt it would be so rewarding helping out and even though I only gave out lanyards and water bottled, and gave directions, its the little things that help.

It was an event that was being held were people were walking up Snowdon for the Charity, with cancer patients being able to get the train up to the summit and everyone once at the top having a mini concert by local singer who himself, suffers from Cancer.
It was such a lovely and rewarding day, with plenty of people there all in good spirits and it genuinely made me feel so happy that I'd helped, I actually couldn't stop smiling driving home.
Like I said before, I'm by no means trying to brag that I've volunteered and am not an amazing person, but I seriously trying to say, if you have a charity event nearby that desperately need volunteers I can 100% be the greatness experience, even if like me you are simply giving out water bottles, small charity need that support!

  1. Ahh this is amazing! Doing charity work is so rewarding especially for something that's clearly very close to your heart. I'm so sorry about your granddad, but I'm sure he would be incredibly proud of you <3 xxx

  2. Sounds like you had a such a great time! I now kind of feel a little ashamed to say I've never done any Charity work or volunteered before. I just find it daunting in the fact that I'll be working with strangers almost double (or triple!) my age for a couple hours. Hopefully this summer I'll be able to spike my confidence, get out there and volunteer at some great places :) x
