Today we had mince pies with our Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers to say a huge THANK YOU for all the friendship and support they offer to their Little Siblings, and to distribute Christmas presents to give to the young people! 🎁 We are so grateful to our partners at the #Turville Trust who help us make Christmas happen for families who may not otherwise be able to provide lots of presents or afford their Christmas meal.

'We call ourselves the Reading Bosses, we do group fist bumps and they get better every week!' As one of our 30+ Schools Plus projects, volunteers have been going in to a local school in Barton, Oxford each week to support year 5 pupils with their reading comprehension. Last year, only 37% of children at the school passed their reading test, compared to a national average of 75%. Having a volunteer there supports these children to develop key literacy skills that they will need for life... some fist bumps down the line, we aim to support each child to feel confident enough to start loving reading! 🤜🤛 This week, all donations to Schools Plus are being doubled by the Dulverton Trust!! If you would like to support our work, or know someone who might, you can donate via the Big Give's website to have you contribution matched 1-1. One donation, twice the impact! Any contribution will go towards helping us reach even more pupils, and continue our work next year. http://bit.ly/schoolsplusxmas (link in bio) #Christmaschallenge #oxfordhub #biggive #schoolsplus #oxford #schools #education #4charity #volunteering #getinvolved #changemaker #socialaction #iwill #oxfordUniversity #brookesuniversity #tutoring #students #schools #littlies

"I think that one of the best ways to integrate into a community is to get stuck into volunteering. Volunteering is important because it fosters civic responsibility and helps us understand the power of community" - Dan-Tam Nguyen, Community Conservation volunteer 🌳 #iwillweek @studenthubs @iwill_campaign

"I love volunteering with Forest Schools because I get the chance to be outside and get out of the Oxford bubble a bit. One of my favourite sessions that we did involved showing the children how to light a fire and then we all sat round and had hot chocolate and marshmallows" - Ben Farmer, Forest Schools volunteer 🍁 You can read Ben's story, and others, on the Oxford Hub Medium series! #iwillweek @iwill_campaign @studenthubs

"One of my favourite things about volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters is getting to see my Little Sibling grow up and mature.
