In the last month I have volunteered with the Salvation Army, Storehouse and Saint Vincent de Paul to demonstrate the real meaning of Christmas involving values of compassion, love and support.

I volunteered with Saint Vincent de Paul on Friday 6 December 2013 and then the Salvation Army on Monday 9 December 2013 sorting toys, food and gifts and making up parcels for those in need. I then supported work of Storehouse and volunteered on Wednesday 18 December 2013.

I also enjoyed supporting Storehouse on Wednesday 18 December 2013 and found their operation extremely impressive. The need for financial donations to help Storehouse purchase items in short supply was clear.
