We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.

Christmas Calligraphy Volunteering Event

5:00 pm

Learn a new skill and make a difference in someone's life this Christmas.

Christmas is a joyous and and happy time of year. Unfortunately, there are many around us who face lonliness during this festive season.

VOLO, MassChallenge and Age UK East London invite you to take part in a skills building volunteering event to help brighten someone's Christmas and let them know they are not alone.

The evening will commence with a water brush pen calligraphy workshop where you will learn basic brush strokes and how to write a stylised alphabet.

You will then have the chance to practice your calligraphy while networking with other volunteers, before putting your new skill to good use.

Together we will create beautiful Christmas cards with heart-warming messages that will be distributed to older people living alone in East London.

This is sure to be a fun evening, and best of all, you will bring joy to many this Christmas.
