MID Devon charity Involve is calling on members of the public to volunteer in the community.

It says volunteering can be a great way to meet new people and socialise, to build confidence and self-esteem.

It can provide opportunities to use existing skills, interests and experience to help others or try something new you have always wanted to do.

Budding volunteers can call Lindsay Cameron for more information on 01884-255734 or email lindsay@|involve-middevon.org.uk Volunteer opportunities can also be explored at the ‘Do it’ website, www.do-it.org.uk
