A King's Lynn woman says she would never have got into paid work without volunteering and says anyone on benefits should gire it a go.
"I would just be stuck at home watching telly and not doing anything. My mum said that if she had to go to work then we had to go to work so she got us involved in it straight away."
Lisa Freestone started at the Millfleet Community Coffee Shop and then got offered paid work at the Globe as a result. She now wants to find a full time job.
The Sue Rider shop also says its volunteers keep getting full time work off the back of their training.
KLFM's Charity of the Month the West Norfolk VCA says they have hundreds of volunteering vaccancies, from dog sitters to sports coaches and fundraisers.
