Christmas is a festive, happy time for most. With presents under the Christmas tree, food in the fridge and an opportunity to meet with family and friends.

Although this isn't the same for everyone. People find themselves facing Christmas Day alone due to many reasons including family living far away or their partners passing away.

At around this time of year we often get enquiries from individuals who would like to spend some time over the Christmas season (including on Christmas Day) volunteering for a charity that works with people  for whom Christmas is less likely to be a time of fun and festivity - such as homeless people or those in residential institutions.

If you are involved with an organisation that has opportunities for additional volunteers over Christmas you can promote your volunteer activities on www.volunteering-wales.net or let us know by contacting nnicholls@wcva.cymru. We will be happy to publicise these through our social media channels.

If you have had experiences of volunteering at Christmas, we'd love to hear your story, too!
