Addlestone, in the borough of Runnymede in Surrey, is a vibrant town with an excellent volunteering community and many places to volunteer. This is a historic Home Counties town with lots of Tudor architecture. If you are looking  for a charity role, Addlestone is an area with plenty available to boost your CV and gain important skills through volunteering and voluntary efforts. The Salvation Army shop in Addlestone provides a good opportunity to volunteer for experience in retail whilst also making a difference to the community. The Salvation Army look to help the vulnerable without judging them for their pasts, and the shop helps to raise money for the organisation. Addlestone also has an Oxfam shop, which provides a very similar service to that of  the Salvation Army shop. For young people looking to volunteer for the Duke of Edinburgh award (DofE), Brooklands Museum accepts young volunteers looking to fulfil the service aspect of the award. The Museum is the birthplace British of motorsport and aviation with many cars, aeroplanes and other vehicles, making for a very interesting place to work close to Addlestone. As well as these organisations you can volunteer with people of any age through the Good Neighbours – Addlestone & Ottershaw scheme, which uses volunteers to provide practical neighbourly help on a short term basis, with the demographic usually being for elderly people, for example driving your neighbours around. So if you want to volunteer or do charity work in Addlestone, it is an excellent location with lots of youth opportunities as well as for all other ages.
