    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Do something amazing, volunteer today. RVS urgently need more volunteers in Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath and surrounding areas.
    Would you like to help people in your local community? If you have a few hours to spare, then they would like to hear from you. Their volunteers share time because it is enjoyable and rewarding. You will be fully trained, and all expenses reimbursed.
    Volunteering with the Royal Voluntary Service won't just help transform the lives of older people, it will change your life too. A couple of hours volunteering will make you feel great. You will be amazed what effect one conversation, one laugh from someone who has spent days alone or a heartfelt 'thank you' can have.
    Volunteering gets you out and about. As a volunteer you won't be stuck doing the same thing and you certainly won't be stuck indoors. RVS volunteers ensure that their clients are transported safely to and from various medical and personal appointments throughout Fife and sometimes beyond.
