Which Type of Christmas Charity Supporter are you?

Christmas is a time to remember our loved ones that are sadly not able to join us at this family festive season. Christmas is also a time for charity.

Many of you each year want to raise money and support a charity around this time, often in tribute to a loved one to keep their memory alive or to help make a difference.

There are many types of Christmas charity supporters:

There are the ‘doers’, who organise charity events, such as mulled wine and stilton evenings; Christmas present-making arts and crafts afternoons; a Santa run, Christmas carol singing or a rock choir concert, and the good old Christmas bazaars.

Then, there are the ‘goers’, who attend all charity events, those with a voice for the choir, those with a taste for mulled wine, those who love making things. Importantly, those without whom these events would flounder.

And there are the ‘givers’, who readily donate bric-a-brac to the stalls, who bring food/wine to the evenings, who give money to charity rather than buy too many presents, who donate fluffy toys to the teddy bear tombola, who buy charity Christmas cards.

Which type of supporter are you? Do you like to get stuck in and organise Christmas charity events? Do you love the social whirl of going to all the Christmas dos? Do you love giving? Perhaps you are a combination of all the above. If so, we applaud you!

Whatever your type, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without you!!!
