Music producer’s passion

SIR - I am urging the nation to share their professional skills and passions to support local charities, community groups and clubs. It’s vital that we support these groups with our skills in a bid to help them survive during difficult economic times.

I volunteer across the nation supporting community groups and young people who are interested in my passions such as music, railways and trains. I know first hand the difference it makes to their lives.

After school and sports clubs, small charities and community groups urgently need people to share their skills and passion to help them survive. From web design, marketing or accountancy to a personal passion for photography, gardening or music – everyone has a skill they can use to help others.

This year’s Make a Difference Day on Saturday, October 27 is the nation’s biggest single day of volunteering and we need you to start thinking about how to share your skills to benefit your local community.

Nearly a million people have taken part so far. You can register for CSV Make a Difference Day now to receive free resources to help create an inspirational volunteer project.

So whether you want to take part with your company, school, community group, or even go it alone, get in touch now by visiting or calling freephone 0800 284 533.

Pete Waterman, music producer, on behalf of CSV Make a Difference Day.
