When you think of Christmas, your mind probably goes to Santa, family and giving presents. While popping gifts under the tree is a great way to show people you care about them, there are other types of giving you can do this season.
Charities always need help and support, but this time of year can be a lot busier, especially if they work with homeless or vulnerable people. This means that Christmas is a great time to get involved and do what you can to help some really worthwhile causes in whatever way you're able.
There are all sorts of opportunities for getting involved with charities and those you choose will be able to give you more information on what they need from people right now. However, there are some great tried and tested methods of getting involved that they will likely always welcome.
Here are some ways you can get involved with charities this Christmas and spread a bit of festive cheer to those who really need it:
