Fiona Morgan (pictured) has just one message for anyone thinking about becoming a volunteer: “Just do it”. It is National Volunteer Week and Mrs Morgan said deciding to give her time for two days a week was one of the best things she could have done.
“I’ve been a stay-at-home mum for 23 years so it’s been a long time since I’ve done anything,” she said. But with her husband working at Bundaberg Brewed Drinks and their two children both at university, Mrs Morgan decided to get out and help the community. “I thought ‘I’ve got a lot of spare time’, I’d like to do something but I just don’t know what,” she said.
