Volunteering within your community

Now is a wonderful time to carry out some volunteering.

December is difficult for some in our communities and with a little help from the Durham Freemasons we can make a significant difference to people’s lives.

 Some tasks are done from the comfort of your own home.

With all the services through the Royal Volunteering Service
