Ten programmes on voluntary work in the community
8: Matching the volunteer and the job
' I think it's the fact that you are doing something for nothing that brings out the best in you. I think once you get paid for it, even a small amount, there is something different about it.' What is it about voluntary work that attracts people: what do they hope to get out of it?
DAVID HOBMAN talks to volunteers about their reasons for taking up voluntary work. and how this relates to their interests and temperament.

A radio correspondence column in which listeners add their comments to views expressed in last Friday's Any Questions? from Wolverhampton
Thursday's broadcast (Radio 2)
Listeners' views for use in ' Any Answers? ' should be addressed to the BBC. Bristol, BS8 2LR. marked ' Any Answers? '

By the late 1930s the tinkle of silver spoons, porcelain cups, and the strings and harps of the ' Thé Dansant ' had largely given way to the clatter of E.P.N.S., pot saucers, and the saxophones of the Tea Dance.
