The festive period is a time when many workers are taking a break themselves, so volunteers are needed to take their place. As many people are off work and kids are on a break from school, volunteering is a great way to spend your spare time, help the wider community and make a difference. Here are a list of volunteering opportunities that might interest you over this Holiday time.

1) Tikun has launched their Light Up a Life: Winter Volunteering Project website. Some opportunities include: taking Cadbury’s chocolate boxes to a variety of hospitals, hospices and day centres around London, serving lunch and activities at an age activity centre, making uplifting postcards for survivors of domestic abuse and many more.
