I wanted to throw myself into something having retired just before Covid hit and initially looked at opportunities to volunteer in an outdoor environment when a request for volunteers at Alzheimer’s Su ..read more

As we celebrate the incredible volunteers who dedicate their time to our charity, Amr Garcha shares what inspires him to volunteer at Scots Lane day club.

"Over the years I've had quite a bit of contact with people of advanced years in the ..read more

After the main Spitfire factory in Southampton was bombed in 1940, production was dispersed to locations so secret that even the neighbours did not know. Salisbury was home to several hidden workshops, and ordinary people in the town built more than 200 of the iconic planes. The fascinating 2016 documentary tells the story in the words of the people involved, with first ..read more
