CSV Make a Difference Day

Today is ‘CSV Make a Difference Day’, CSV Make a Difference Daythe UK’s biggest day of volunteering in the community. It encourages people to try volunteering for one day, giving their time rather than money to make a positive contribution to their local areas.

Over 120,000 volunteers took part in 4,000 innovative activities across the UK for CSV Make a Difference Day 2006. Individuals turned wasteland into playgrounds, teddies were knitted for hospitals, students arranged tea parties for older people, sports clubs held training days for disabled people, and charities used the day to help recruit new volunteers!

Now in its 12th year, CSV Make a Difference Day hopes again to involve over 120,000 volunteers in more than 5,000 activities this October.
