Make a Difference: Volunteer with Simple Gifts

 Simple Gifts is the largest Unitarian social action project in the London area and works in one of the most deprived boroughs in the city. From its small beginnings four years ago, it has rekindled the aspirations of the original Mansford Street Unitarian church to help the local community. You can read more about the Simple Gifts story here: www.simplegiftsucsa.org.uk

We need your help – if you have a little time to spare during the week, we would love you to join us at one of our community programmes. There are many different ways to help from helping people with their English, playing with local children to preparing a community lunch or assisting with sewing classes.
