Mumsnet has got a brand new topic for volunteering and charitable giving, but we'd also like get some action started locally.

We're frequently blown away by the ingenuity and generosity of Mumsnetters when it comes to helping each other out; from challenging each other to fundraising runs, to prodding others to give blood/sign the bone-marrow donation register, to knitting/crocheting for MN's very own Woolly Hugs.

So here are ten ideas to inspire you to do something positive to make a difference in your local area (you'll see it doesn't have to be a massive drain on your time or resources). www.mumsnet.com/campaigns/10-easy-ways-to-support-a-good-cause

Go here to www.givemore.org.uk/mumsnet/ to make a pledge of your own, and we'd love it if you shared what you pledged on this thread.

This is such a fantastic post with some great ideas.

I work for Marie Curie Cancer Care (Derbyshire Community Fundraiser) and we are currently looking at setting up a fundraising group in the Derby area. Volunteers will help the charity by helping with some of our campaigns and organising their own events in the local area.

We are currently looking at bringing together volunteers from Spondon, Chaddesden, Allestree and Darley Abbey areas to try and set up a group.

If you think you could give some of your ideas or time to help with this, then feel free to join us at an informal information meeting at Asda Spondon on the 4th September at 7pm. Feel free to message me for more details.
