Give local this winter

Local community groups and organisations need your help more than ever to support people over the festive season. It’s been a difficult year for lots of groups and charities who have struggled to keep going in lockdown and beyond. TSL Kirklees Volunteering have some useful information about how you can give local to show your support.
