Post Pals is a small charity run completely by volunteers. They are committed to putting a smile on the face of seriously ill children by encouraging the rest of the world to send cheerful post their way. Their focus is on children aged 3 to 17 throughout the UK. If you have some time to spare, why not send a card or small gift to one of their 'Featured Pals'.

The Big Knit
Consider yourself to be relatively crafty? Create a little woolly hat and help Age UK overcome loneliness in later life! For every bottle sold, Innocent donates 25p to the charity. Their Big Knit initiative was launched back in 2003 and has raised more than £2 million during this time. You can use simple patterns or, if you're feeling confident, more advanced ones. The choice is all yours!
