Charity works – first one I ever did was volunteering as a stage manager/ lighting tech for Scottish Opera for all, this toured places like old folks homes, community centres, craigmiller castle etc.  The cast was always local residents, with a high number of physically or mentally handicapped performers.  They loved being the centre of attention and were really appreciated by the community at large.
