RESEARCH has revealed that volunteers feel happier, healthier and less stressed.

So with Volunteers' Week (June 1-7) just around the corner, The Comet is backing the work that the Volunteer Centre in Stevenage and North Herts is doing to encourage more people to give up a few hours of their time each week to help an organisation.

Instead of sitting at home twiddling your thumbs why not get out into the community and meet like-minded people?
