To mark His Majesty The King’s Coronation thousands of organisations across the country are getting together to give us all the chance to help out in our own local communities.

Starting on Monday 8th May there will be opportunities for everyone to join in. No matter what you are good at, there’ll be something to suit helping hands of all shapes and sizes! From checking in on someone who’d like a bit of company or volunteering for a charity the more of us who join in, the bigger help we will be.

If you can spare an hour…fantastic. The day?…amazing. If it becomes a regular thing, so much the better. If we all do a bit, it will really help a lot.

Find out more on the Big Help Out website where you can find local events or arrange your own.  

For example, how about taking part in Hedgelife Help Out to help build a nationwide picture of how healthy our hedgerows are? Join in between 1st and 31st May and show your support for these important homes for nature.

Or The Great Big River Chess Help Out on Monday 8th May, organised by the River Chess Association in partnership with the Chiltern Society, Chesham Town Council, Three Rivers District Council, Chesham Environmental Group and The Chiltern Chalk Stream Project.
