Helping others at Christmas: Citizenship and community
What is it?
This PowerPoint can be used to structure a project based around helping others at Christmas, with links to challenges 2A6 and 2B1 from the Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE). Learners are asked to investigate potential ways of helping others at Christmas, they then plan and undertake a period of volunteering, community or fundraising work and review their involvement. For example: organising a Christmas fayre to raise funds for charity; volunteering at a homeless shelter; donating presents to overseas children via a shoebox appeal; hosting a social event for local elderly residents.
