2. One-off volunteering opportunity of the month:
Getting closer to the festive season, November offered many one-off volunteering opportunities. The weekend from 22 to 24 November, Westminster students were invited to volunteer at Taste of London 2019 – The Festive Edition. The opportunity enabled Westminster students to help raise awareness about Action Against Hunger and together with the charity raise £20000 to support their work around the world including providing food assistance, clean water, training and healthcare.
December is coming and there will be more one-off volunteering opportunities. Why not volunteer and offer your time as a Christmas present for someone in need?
