Oldhamers urged to give something back

Date published: 22 November 2018


It is impossible to ignore that Christmas is fast approaching; from fairy lights to decorations, the hallmarks of the festive period are all around us.

But after this week’s Black Friday sales, #GivingTuesday next week (November 27) is a day to do little things that can make a big difference to others in Oldham.

Whether you donate money to charity, volunteer in your community, or donate unwanted clothes to a charity shop everyone can give something back.

Even the smallest gesture could make a big difference to somebody’s Christmas, so after Black Friday this is a great chance to join the 2,500 plus charities and companies and millions of people across the country doing good stuff this #GivingTuesday.
