Christmas volunteers

Christmas volunteers

Volunteer this Christmas 
Sometimes, one of the simplest things that you can give is the gift of time. As 2018 draws to a close some of our organisations find themselves winding down for the festive season, whilst for others it is gearing up to be their busiest time of year.

Charities that support vulnerable, isolated, elderly or frail people can often find themselves inundated during the winter months and can really appreciate an extra pair of hands. If you have been thinking about volunteering over the festive season and have a few hours to spare why not get in touch with us or follow this link to see what’s available in your area and use the search word Christmas.

Still looking? Local churches, care homes and community centres can also be on the lookout for December volunteers, why not call in to find out or for more ideas or contact us at vol.bureau@cfnf.org.uk or 01425 482773 or come to one of our volunteering drop ins listed here.
