Who Volunteers for Mission Services of London?: Volunteers come to us for a wide variety of reasons from all walks of life. Some people are retired or semi-retired and interested in volunteering during the day. Others have time in the evening and on weekends. We strive to provide opportunities that meet the interests and time commitments of all those who want to give back. Volunteers have enjoyed the benefits of retail skills, life skills, social interaction and community building.
