Updated: Nov 21, 2021
As the festive period fast approaches here's 10 ways to make a difference this Christmas without spending money!
Donate toys to charity shops like "Little Lives" that offer a wide range of adult and kids clothing, bags, shoes and toys.
Volunteer as a phone friend to members of the community to reduce isolation
Access the Council's Covid volunteering form. They are doing ID checks etc and will be able to access volunteers from that list. https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/forms/volunteer-to-help-your-community
If you play an instrument you could spend some time visiting care homes nothing like acoustic guitar and mulled wine!
Donate clothes to a charity like the Salvation Army or www.icollectclothes.co.uk - Clothing collection for charities
Volunteer at a local animal shelter, many animals at this time of year are left alone with no toys or cuddles.
Donate food to local homeless shelter or food bank
Volunteer at your local church, mosque or temple!
Organize carol singing events in the community
Deliver Christmas home cooked meals with charities like Age UK Lambeth
I will add that if you are able to donate money to a charity Age UK Lambeth 2021 Christmas Campaign for MYhohoho is now live!
So if you or any of your friends, family etc who would like to make a donation between now and January, please use the #JustGiving link below:
