I retired at the age of 60 when I sold my not too successful record business - the business had been in decline for some years and was running close to a loss.
A few weeks after retirement I was utterly bored and just had to find something else to do - It was my niece who suggested that I volunteer my services as an interviewer
through the labour department to interview volunteers who were themselves seeking a job to pass their time. I found it a rewarding pastime which in many cases lead to some of those interviewed getting a free help job - but then in many cases a full time job developed - I did this for a few months before becoming aware of the local budget service who were running a course for budget advisors, I took the 12 week part time course before qualifying. Following this I worked the local area as a volunteer budget advisor-and this I did for about 5 years
before leaving the area to move to our current home.
Again the same boredom set in , and again needed to be doing something and it was then that I was made aware of a local service driving people needing help to the various hospitals - this usually meant a car ride of about 50 miles return to various hospitals - the ride was free but a petrol donation was made - again a very rewarding time.
I am sure there will be some of you who would benefit by giving your services to various organizations far too numerous to mention here - give it some thought -Drummer
