Crisis at Christmas - You can help...

Christmas is about spending time with loved ones, enjoying the festivities and hopefully a few presents under the tree. But some do not have the gift of a home this Christmas. Crisis the national charity for single homeless people work endlessly to give people some sort of Christmas, whether it be from a hot meal, a relaxing massage or just a bit of companionship.
I'm volunteering for the first time this year. As I've got older, I've realised how lucky I am to have a home, and family. I will be working in the 'salon', cutting hair and whatever else I need to do. It's not much but I want to be able to make someone feel a bit better and by hairdressing I can do that.
Crisis don't only need service volunteers, if you have a passion for arts and crafts or just feel you could help by doing whatever Crisis throw at you please register. The minimum is two shifts (spaced 12 hours apart) and they have a few different centres that need your help.
I don't want anyone to think I'm pressuring people into registering, or that I'm 'holier than thou' by saying I'll be volunteering, I just wanted to bring awareness to something that is definitely worth giving a few hours up for.
