Christmas Volunteering

Why volunteer before Christmas break?

Though you might not think it, there’s more to Christmas than necking a load of dinner and watching your nan drift off in front of the Queen’s Speech after a cheeky sherry. So, as the festive season approaches, why not give the gift of your time before Christmas through volunteering?


Here’s our Top 5 Reasons to give Christmas Volunteering a Go:

  1. Spread some festive cheer and make a difference in your community
  2. Meet some amazing new people, from your fellow volunteers to the people you help
  3. Experience something new!
  4. Do some good on your lunchbreak – we’ve got drop in sessions to fit around the Christmas rush
  5. Sharpen up that CV before the new year!

Christmas volunteering – it’s good for others, it’s good for you.
