As the Christmas season draws near, we offer our business volunteers the opportunity to spread some seasonal cheer by assisting local community groups with festive activities. These activities could include hosting a Christmas party at their office, helping out at a festive lunch, wrapping presents, providing and participating in festive crafts or decorating a tree or community space. We work closely with our community partners to understand their specific needs and match the skills, experience, and resources of our volunteers to where they can make a positive impact.
The challenges present an excellent opportunity for businesses to invest time and support in the community and experience its true benefits
Bags of Hope
The Bags of Hope campaign is a well-received initiative among our business members and community groups. It gives all employees an opportunity to donate and participate in a great cause that makes a significant difference to those who receive them. The campaign's aim is to provide small festive gifts and winter treats to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, particularly during what can be a difficult and lonely time.
This year we a launching a new initiative, Knit-in-November. We are asking volunteers to knit or crochet either bobble hats or beanie hats of their choice, which will then be included in the 'Bags of Hope' before they are distributed amongst the community.
