SNAPSHOT: Mucking in

Community Service Volunteers acquired the help of a host of celebrities last week to give a homeless shelter in London a makeover in the build-up to Make a Difference Day (MADD), to be held in the autumn.

Sir Brian Jenkins, chairman of the Charities Aid Foundation, record producer Pete Waterman, TV presenter Emma Forbes and the band Faithless helped launch the UK's biggest day of volunteering by painting and decorating rooms at St Mungo's hostel in Covent Garden.The TV and dining rooms, which were in desperate need of improvement, were completely refurbished in just one day to help promote and recruit volunteers for the event on Saturday 26 October.

The charity creates opportunities for people to take an active part in the life of their community.
