Cabinet to volunteer a day a year

Prime minister David Cameron has called on his Cabinet to volunteer their services for a day a year as part of his Big Society initiatives. In a speech today he will say he wants to make giving more of a social norm. “And when I say we - I mean literally we – the Cabinet. We’re all giving at least a day a year volunteering. And we’re encouraging all our civil servants to do the same.” Cameron will say he wants to prove the government is about more than just cuts.
