During the pandemic, we as a family have coped pretty well but were conscious that there were people really struggling. My son Felix is 18 and I wanted to show him the value of providing your own time for the benefit of others and nothing else. We do not have a great deal of time, but we manage to do deliveries of food parcels on a Saturday morning, and Felix then goes to work at Waitrose for 8 hours! Felix is learning to drive so this is also providing some much-needed experience behind the wheel and trying to follow the satnav! The sense of pride we both feel when we receive appreciation from recipients, and to know we are helping those less fortunate is a good feeling, but also makes us aware that we could do more.
