Christmas is a time for giving and a season of festivities and cheer. But don’t forget those who are less fortunate and aren’t able to enjoy the Christmas period. You can make a difference this year and take part in the December fundraising events up and down the country. You don’t have to stick to the organised events either, you can organise your own. Whether you host your own Christmas Jumper day at work or your own Christmas Fair at your school, you can do your bit this year to give a little extra and spread the festive cheer and Christmas spirit.
Happy Fundraising & Merry Christmas!
