Giving Voice Christmas cheer!


We are inviting you and your colleagues to think of ingenious ways to spread the Giving Voice

message by using the Christmas decorations on your own trees, on trees in the nursery, school or clinic you work in, in day care facilities, in town halls, shopping centres and hospitals.

The template for the Christmas Bauble can be downloaded here:

Step 1: Cut out the Christmas bauble, using the template.

Step 2: Decorate the Bauble!

Step 3: Make the Bauble by gluing the tabs together, remember to add string or ribbon to a corner to hang on the tree!

Step 4: Hang on Christmas tree!

Making the decorations together with your clients is fun and talking about why communication is so important is a great activity for parents, friends, school pupils and staff. Send a photograph of your giving voice decorations in situ to us by 31st January to and we will select  the top 3 photos for a prize …

1.    The furthest away

2.    The most creative and inventive use of the decorations/activity

3.    The most influential location
