Be a Star for an Hour! #ChristmasTIME volunteering

16 December 2017

Volunteer Now is asking people across Northern Ireland if they could ‘Star for an Hour’ by volunteering for a charity this Christmas.

Our ChristmasTIME campaign aims to encourage more people to get involved in a one-off or short volunteering opportunity as part of their festive celebrations.

Denise Hayward, Chief Executive, Volunteer Now explains, “Many charities and community organisations need extra help around Christmas with their festive  volunteering opportunities – from helping with a food drive,  wrapping presents as part of Christmas fundraising, helping at parties or events to helping Santa at his Grotto!     

By giving as little as an hour of your time to volunteer for one of these roles you can make a big difference to an organisation, a cause, or a family in need. The added bonus is that it’s fun and you come away feeling good too.  It’s win-win for everyone!”
