Volunteer week begins tomorrow and there is an easy way for News Shopper readers to play their part.
Charity Fcancer allows you to type in your skills and hobbies into its website as well as details such as where you live and how much time you can spare.
The website then processes your details and puts you in touch with a suitable charity which needs your help.
You could do anything from helping design a website to helping out at an event or even photography and music.
There is no regular time commitment and many of the volunteer roles can be carried out at home.
Volunteer week ends on June 7.
