Having recently spent a day volunteering at PIP, I can safely say that it’s an experience I cannot recommend highly enough. Not only do you learn a lot about yourself, it is one of the most rewarding days of work I’ve ever done.
I only live around the corner from PIP so when I work here in the mornings I can get up at 8:30am. I always make time for a quick breakfast of cereal or a banana otherwise I start feeling a bit dizzy! If I want to treat myself, I grab a hot chocolate from the café across the road which makes starting the day a lot easier.
1. Regular Contribution
It will come as no surprise that small, regular donations are the best way you can give your support to a small charity like PIP. However, the knowledge that you can do this right out of your pay check with the Give As Your Earn scheme is not quite as widespread. Not only does this provide a small, altruistic buzz at the end of each month (a great antidote to the frustration of inadvertently ripping your pay slip in half as you wrestle with the perforated seals) but all gifts are tax free.
