Charities - Supporting Our Local Organisations

We have a wealth of inspirational charitable organisations in Milton Keynes who rely heavily on the good nature and support of the local community.

I have been fortunate to meet many wonderful individuals who work tirelessly for local and national charities and I am always amazed by their dedication and commitment.  Their actions do make an immeasurable difference to peoples lives, whether it be running in a marathon or just sitting listening to children reading in a classroom.  

There are a diverse range of voluntary opportunities in Milton Keynes and if you are looking to get involved contact https://communityactionmk.org/ for more information.
