I began volunteering at the start of the lockdown for the charity Age UK by ringing two elderly shielding people with a friendly phone call on a weekly basis. I've continued to do this throughout the year.
Age UK asked me if I could deliver a Christmas workshop to a group of elderly people who now regularly use Zoom for workshops. In the 20-minute session I taught the group how to use Indian printing blocks to make Christmas cards, gift tags and pictures that make lovely Christmas gifts. Age UK have lots more workshops planned for the groups over the next few months.
