Ho Ho Ho! Spread the Festive Cheer: Volunteer this Christmas 2023

The merriment of Christmas isn't just about presents and twinkling lights; it's about the spirit of giving and making a difference in the lives of others. This festive season, we invite you to join us in spreading the joy of Christmas by volunteering your precious time.

As the festive season approaches, organisations in Bromley are seeking kind-hearted individuals who want to make a positive impact in their community. We have a sleigh-full of Christmas volunteering opportunities that you can get involved in!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - can you help?

"As you know, every year we take Santa around the streets of Chislehurst to spread joy and raise money for local charities.

There are many children in Chislehurst who need a helping hand, especially during this challenging time. By joining us, you will make a difference in their lives and bring smiles to their faces. They, and we in Chislehurst Rotary, will be immensely grateful for your generosity.

If you are able to help us, please send an email to us a rcchislehurst@gmail.com stating which day(s) you are available and we will then email you to confirm.

South London Christmas Dinners

The Christmas Dinners, founded by poet Lemn Sissay OBE in 2013, are organised by teams of volunteers who work together to provide a special and fun-filled day, along with a most scrumptious dinner on Christmas Day for young people, aged between 18 and 25, who have experienced Local Authority care (foster care, children’s homes). As well as a Christmas dinner, guests are gifted presents, food hampers and treats.
