Ever wanted to do something to help out the community but not sure where to start? Hands On London makes it simple by pairing up volunteers who have free time with charities in need of a helping hand. Participating organisations include Ronald McDonald House which supports families of seriously ill children, Thrive who hold gardening classes for the disabled and Crossways which provides a springboard for young adults. There are already around 350 Londoners participating in Hands On so go on, reach out and lend a hand.
