Location of Voluntary Activity:
With lockdown restrictions set to be eased by the summer, we are currently looking for opportunities in which to raise funds for our much-loved children’s charity.
Supporting vulnerable children and young people across the city of York by providing award-winning mentoring services, we’ve seen an unusual spike in emails from families asking if we offer… a letter from Father Christmas service in exchange for a charitable donation!
Keen to spread some Christmas cheer, we’re eager to get a letter from Santa service set up later on this year so we can bring more happiness into the lives of children and young people.
We are, therefore, looking to recruit a handful of Secret Santa volunteers who would like to use their calligraphy skills or fancy handwriting to raise funds to support the mental, emotional and/or social wellbeing of the next generation.
Volunteers would need to commit to a few hours a month between September and December to write personalised letters in which all materials will be provided.
As this is a niche informal and fun volunteer role, so no experience is required, however, a dash of enthusiasm and a jingle of dedication is a must all the way!
Skills and behaviours needed for the role:
- Able to commit a couple of hours a month between September and December 2021 to help run our Letter to Santa service
- Calligraphy skills or ability to write letters using fancy styled writing
- Passionate about support local children and young people
Will there be a DBS check? No
Driving Licence required? No
Volunteer's own vehicle required? No

When are volunteers needed: Volunteers needed between September and December 2021.
