During the past few days the DomPost has been running a series of stories, under the heading Helping Out, profiling interesting and different volunteers. A couple of those written about to date, have been Tania Chinnaiyah, a volunteer with Mary Potter Hospice and Marijke Pritchare who is working with literacy programmes at Rimutaka Prison. Marijke found her role through Volunteer Hutt’s outreach in Upper Hutt. These articles will be a great stimulus for those who are thinking about volunteering to take the next step in 2009 – and ring Volunteer Wellington (or Hutt or Porirua) for an interview. The numbers are 499 4570, 566 6786 (Hutt) and 237 5355 (Porirua).
