What is volunteering?

Hannah Cunningham from Volunteer Marlborough

Volunteering is defined by Volunteer Marlborough and the rest of our network of volunteer centres as "Time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain." When you consider that definition, a lot of people immediately think of 'formal' volunteering like helping in an op shop or a rest home. However, there are many other types of volunteering; helping at church or on the marae, coaching and managing kids sports teams, or mowing your elderly neighbor's lawn are all examples of volunteering!
Volunteering is really just about helping others, and we strongly believe ALL volunteering should be celebrated!
