95 years of volunteering

Betty Lowe is still volunteering – at the grand age of 106.

She joined the Girl Guides in 1919 when she was 11 and is still a member of the association. She also still helps in the cafe at her local hospital with the Royal Voluntary Service.

According to the Times last Saturday she says that she has no plans to ‘retire’ from volunteering – ‘My sight isn’t very good, but I can use my hands. As long as I can keep volunteering I will.’

Amazing.
