If you have a bit of spare time over the Christmas season why not donate your time to a charity or organisation that would really appreciate the help. There are so many volunteer opportunities and although it’s a busy time of year, some of them only need help for an hour or so. Here are just a few ideas:
The Donal Parsons Trust would love volunteers to help with their book stall at the Strandhill Market on Sundays and they also need face painters for Santa’s Grotto .
GOAL are looking for men and women of all ages to hold a GOAL Mile in their area. Its easy and fun. Once you have chosen a location and date you need to let people know your GOAL Mile is happening in your community. People turn up, walk/run/jog a mile a make a small donation to GOAL.
Could you ‘Sing for Simon’? Saturday 20th Dec is “Sing for Simon” and the North West Simon Community are seeking individuals/groups/schools/clubs to come together to sing in The Tesco Shopping Arcade in Sligo to raise their voices to help end homelessness in Sligo and surrounding areas.
If you are interested in any of these roles or would like to find out about any other roles you can contact the Sligo Volunteer Centre.
