2017 has arrived! It’s the new year, a time for change…
However, the post-Christmas slump is kicking in, so chances are you’re feeling the January blues and let’s be honest, the weather is not that great. Some of you have made new year’s resolutions, some have not. Not to worry if you have not… There is still time to make your new year’s resolution volunteering!
There are many wonderful benefits of volunteering – and ways it can help achieve your new year’s resolutions. Did you know volunteering can lead to increased sociability, reduced loneliness and can get you out of the house?
It can also:
improve your mental and physical health
help you get fit
give you a sense of purpose
and increase feelings of self worth!!
And although it may be tempting to stay at home where it is warm and cosy (especially at this time of the year!), it is important to get out into the world, seize the day and work off those mince pies.
And the good news is that we have many volunteering opportunities to choose from.
To find something just for you that will raise your spirits and help you keep your new year’s resolutions, start now by visiting Volunteer Connect the online matching tool on our website.
Want to come and see us? Come to our Winter Volunteering Fair in King’s X on Tuesday 24th January and meet more than 40 organisations looking for volunteers for a variety of roles.
