My local branch of Royal British Legion advertised for help selling poppies in a local 'superstore' and I volunteered four year ago and I have not regretted it for one moment. We share the time into blocks of 3 hours two people together and different times of the day, I met again friends and neighbours long lost and become close to other 'poppy' sellers. The public are so generous for the very worthwhile charity and I'm proud to help if only in a small way. Does anyone else help in this way?
I am still working hard and with the retirement age now at 67 for me its getting to a situation where people are getting very old at retirement. ten years ago I thought I may retire at 60..no chance of that with the economy now!
