“It is only in giving of oneself to others that we truly live.” Ethel Percy Andrus

Consider the impact you want to have on the world, and the legacy you wish to leave when you are gone. Giving back need not cost a cent and should not be a burden; it is simply how you choose to make a difference every day.
For one person it may mean volunteering at a charity, or mentoring a disadvantaged child, and for someone else it could be teaching a grandchild to ride a bike, or opening the door for someone with their hands full.

Whether your contribution is large or small, whenever you make a difference in the lives of others, you are giving back. You can enrich your own life by creating today what you want to be remembered for tomorrow.

“Society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they shall never sit in.” – Greek Proverb

Living in a time of global change means that we should be increasingly concerned about the environment and what kind of future we are shaping for our children and grandchildren. We have a responsibility to do as much as we can to ensure that we are creating a sustainable future for all those that come after us. People may think that their tiny contribution could not possibly make a big enough change to matter; or that a wasted paper here and a dripping tap there would never make a noticeable difference in anyone’s life. But with 40-odd million people in this country, we are multiplying every tiny action by a very large number.

The environment is our gift; it provides for us, and provides us with immense beauty and pleasure. Ask yourself if you are doing enough to repay the favour.

Giving to others and our world is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and future generations.
