Despite everything around us feeling like it has come to a grinding halt, local charities are working harder than ever before to ensure they are able to keep their doors open to their visitors and patients during the pandemic. A lot of volunteers are unable to work which means organisations who heavily rely on voluntary work and donations are left worrying about how they can continue to deliver their services.
Place yourself in other people’s shoes
Many of us are probably worrying about the current situation regarding the pandemic. Whilst we are all working from home and perhaps eating a little more than we should be, clinical staff and support workers are working tirelessly to continue their services, helping support those in need and could really do with your help!
How you can donate and make a difference to local charities
If you follow any local charity on social media, you will have noticed their urgent pleas and virtual fundraising events. If you are looking for a way to give back to these incredible charities, you could always partake in these virtual fundraising events or create one of your own. You may really enjoy running, so why not commit to running a half marathon in your garden and donate all the proceeds to your chosen charity?
