There is a massive volunteer community here, you name it and there is probably a group volunteering. There is a directory of more than 120 organisations who want volunteers, then there are lots of other groups. I was involved in setting up the original directory and now the directory is maintained by our local newspaper and is available on their website.
One group was in the news this week, on Sunday they had their annual 'ride out', about 500 motorcycles touring the island and raising funds for Holidays for Heroes, Jersey. The latter provides holidays locally for people who have/are serving in the armed forces. The motorcycle group not only raise funds for them but take the heroes out on their Harleys etc when they are in the island having a holiday.
I personally volunteer at Shopmobility which is a charity which provided wheelchairs and mobility scooters for people to use either when visiting the island or for locals wanting to use one for shopping etc. I have in the past volunteered to help with the elderly and also in an Citizens Advice Bureau. The latter led to a fulltime job.
