Festive Opportunities to Brighten Up Your Winter

It's that time of year again! Switch on the fireplace, join the debate about the John Lewis advert and make that all important decision over whether to watch The Great Escape or The Sound of Music. The festive season is upon us, a time where we come together with family to eat, drink and be merry.

In the 'season of goodwill', we encourage you to think about volunteering. If you are taking some hard-earned time off work, why not give a few hours of it to make a difference to someone else's life?

We have compiled a list of festive volunteering opportunities that you might want to consider getting involved in. Many of these are interfaith, affording you the chance to get out into the wider community and support some of the organisations that are short-staffed or requiring a few extra pairs of hands for a special event. Some are family-friendly, so if you have children or grandchildren on their holidays you can engage in an activity to help others together.  We have also created a handy traffic light system to show roughly how much commitment is required for a particular opportunity, to help you decide at first glance whether you can afford the time to devote to the cause.

This list will be updated until 1st January, so do check back if you don't find something first tiem around. And if you hear about any opportunities you would like to see included in the list, be sure to let Mike Silverstone know at mike@jvn.org.uk or on 020 3869 3894.
