Be my... Volunteer

Love it or hate it, it's that time of year again... red roses, love hearts and fluffy teddy bears wherever you look.

If you fancy a change from splashing out on an expensive meal, or want to take your mind off singledom, I've come across a few different ideas to spread the love this year:

  • Write a letter: If you're dreading Valentine's Day because you're single, make yourself feel better by writing a letter to someone who's really alone. The Prison Fellowship is looking for volunteer letter writers to encourage prisoners who don't have anyone.
  • Find Love:  What better way to find your soulmate than doing something you're passionate about. Sign up for Thames21 First Eco Dating event on 13th February.
  • Run into the sunset: For the romantics out there, crossing the finish line hand in hand with your loved one might just be what you're looking for. Join this year's London Love Run and feel even better for raising money for the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy charity.

If you end up doing any of the above, I'd love to hear about it. So post us a message on Facebook or Twitter.

Happy Valentine's Day!
