WHEN it comes to volunteering the Central West has much higher rates than the national average. People not only fight fires and coach junior sport as a volunteer, they also do things that are just a little bit different all in the name of helping their community.

Nationally, 19 per cent of people regularly volunteer, data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows, but in this region it seems the smallest communities give more of their time.
