Many community organisations, including the Coleford Area Partnership, could not exist without volunteers.
To give you one example:
The Dr.Charley Luncheon Club was set up in 1973 and Dora Matthews was elected as the Chairman. Forty years later, Dora is still at the helm of this successful organisation that exists for the benefit of anyone over the age of 60 years who lives in the GL16 post-code area. The Club meets every Wednesday at the Main Place here in Coleford.
On Wednesday 14th August 2013, Dora will also celebrate her 90th Birthday.
Now tell us that you do not have any time to be a volunteer.
