Many charities are desperate for people to lend a helping hand over the festive season. But they do need to plan ahead, so if you are thinking of volunteering this Christmas, now’s the time to find out what opportunities are available in your area.
Take a look at some of the ideas below - or why not think about making volunteering part of your office celebrations?
Christmas Party Volunteering
TimeBank can match you up to a volunteering opportunity that suits you and your team - however big or small - and then organise some great local places for your party afterwards.
The emphasis is on the volunteering and the party may be a little shorter or less glamorous than usual but trust us, you’ll feel so much better in the morning! You’ll know that you have made a difference – made a child’s eyes light up as they unwrap a present, given hope to a homeless person in a hostel or created a space that children can play in.
You’ll have done it with your colleagues, be it bonding over present wrapping, smiling over soup serving, or competing to dig a ditch! And then you’ll go to a local pub or restaurant to unwind and share your stories of volunteering this Christmas.
