Clari for years and years my little gardening granny was a voluntary Centre Organiser for what was then the WVS (and later the WRVS).
From its beginning at the outbreak of WW2, to her retirement in the early 1980s when she was in her 80s she organised homes for evacuees, prams and baby clothes for unmarried mums who had little support, loans of medical equipment, hospital visits for those without transport, meals on wheels and holidays for the elderly (many of whom were younger than she was) and loads of other stuff,and was awarded the BEM by the Queen. Brilliant organisation. I know it's changed hugely since my granny's day, but I hope the job gives you as much fulfillment as she found with the organisation
