Volunteering is good for you!
After all the over indulgence you might be thinking about giving something back, getting healthier or trying something new. Well, how about supporting one of our fantastic tourist attractions in the process?
Nene Valley Railway is a local gem, famous for great steam rides, Thomas the Tank Engine and as a popular filming location for the likes of James Bond movies and more. While the benefits to the railway of having volunteers are obvious, it turns out that the arrangement isn’t entirely one-sided.
There’s plenty of buzz at the moment about how volunteer work can bring benefits in both psychological and physical health especially with those of retirement age and beyond.
Volunteering is satisfying and fun and allows retirees to continue to enjoy the self-worth that comes from achievement albeit in another field. Whatever your age though, you get to meet new people and share an interest or learn something new.
Interested? Why not pop along to the volunteers open day on Saturday March 5 at Wansford Station, Old Great North Road, Stibbington, Peterborough, PE8 6LR. Doors open at 10am.
