Are you doing anything charitable this Christmas or in the run up? Its a tricky time of year for many people, loneliness, homelessness, amongst others.

It would be good to hear how HUKDERS are helping others, perhaps inspiring others.

Don't forget a nice little present for your lonely, elderly friend or neighbour

My wife organises a collection for jigsaws, wool and knitting paraphernalia, books, perfume, cotton handkerchiefs, and other stuff for the elderly in a care home. Some have no relatives and some have relatives who only visit sporadically due to distance etc.

Staff do their best for the elderly but they cannot afford out of their appallingly low wages, treats and gifts, although many do.

After Christmas my wife also collects unwanted smellies as they can be distributed to the elderly throughout the year as birthday presents.

One of the local schools opens up on Christmas day and does Christmas dinner for anyone who would otherwise be alone. There was a good turn out last year including volunteers, hoping the same for this year

My daughters club is doing an appeal for toys, food, warm clothes that we will give to homeless shelters.

I hadn't even considered it with the mad rush to get everything else sorted.
Any recommendations?

If you are buying a new winter coat, most homeless centres will accept you old one as winter warmth coats are essential for the homeless.

Shoe boxes for Benjamin foundation, a local charity and a bake sale for Break, another local charity. I like the collection your wife does, Mark. Great idea :3
Some old people living alone would really appreciate a visit and a small gift like a box of biscuits. Loneliness is a terrible thing :(
We visit a neighbour who's on his own and do his bins and bits of shopping all year round. We have a "works" Christmas dinner in Saintsbury's cafe each year with him X)

I try and do a random act of kindness every day.

For many years I have made up hampers for ppl I know, and put in some treats that they may not be able to afford, I make sure I tip the ppl who have given good service in the past year, for the last 5 years I have also given to the food bank.

I really hate Christmas now I find it so difficult to cope with, I always attend midnight mass but thats it now, for the last 3 years have not bothered with any decorations, I tell ppl I am going away

I'm thinking of either stoning or trying to get stoned a few Christians; whichever is better for their Soul.
Peace and love to all obviously including turkeys so a veggie Christmas for me.
