Here's how you can get involved in 'virtual volunteering' during lockdown
If you've got a spare few minutes in between the home-schooling, the online workouts, the incessant baking of banana bread and the Zoom meetings, why not help support a local worthy cause?
Virtual volunteering is the modern way to lend your support to a project or initiative in need of a helping hand.
