    A 17-year-old schoolgirl from Anstruther has hit the headlines for volunteering, as she has been granted permission to leave class to save lives at sea after becoming an RNLI volunteer.

    Danielle Marr, who is in her final year at The Waid Academy in Anstruther, Fife, has joined the RNLI crew in the town as a volunteer on local lifeboats. She will also have to carry a pager and respond to emergency calls throughout the day. 

    What a fantastic story. Do you have a lovely volunteering story to tell? How has volunteering changed your life or the lives of others? We want to hear all about it.
