Voluntary work - Can anyone make use of me?

I'm one of the happy 2,5 million unemployed and am bored out of my mind!  Does anyone know of any local voluntary organisations that could make use of a fit, young at heart, computer literate person for a day or so each week? 

I'm open to almost everything that doesn't involve animals - it isn't that I hate cats and dogs but I'd prefer not to work with them!!

Cheers, andy

Hi Andy,

There is an organization called  Les Restos du Coeur : http://www.restaurantsducoeur.com/

Basically, they feed the hungry, regardless of their nationality.

I don't know where you live, but they have an 'outlet' in just about every 'major' town in France where there are hungry people.  In Antibes there's one for example.  They are French, so if you don't speak the language, it's a great way to learn.

Oh .... and they are NOT religious.
