Most of us are lucky enough to have precious memories of magical festive moments. In our latest articles, we want to get back to the heart of what makes this time of year magic. We look at affordable festive activities your whole family can share together, and present ideas that enable you to give more, for less. We’ve even got an exclusive offer on a mixed case of Virgin Wines.
Meanwhile, in the Virgin Money Allied South Pole Challenge, Prince Harry and the actors Dominic West and Alexander Skarsgard are spending the run-up to Christmas trekking 335km to the South Pole with wounded ex-servicemen and women, to support the charity Walking With The Wounded. Read our article to find out more about the expedition and how you can get involved. If you have a special message for a loved one this Christmas, enter our prize draw to have your message sent all the way from the South Pole.
Finally, we hope you’ll be inspired as we are by James Beavis’ video diary of his experience of being homeless last Christmas. In doing so he raised over £28,000 for Crisis, the charity for homeless people – helping to bring a bit of magic back to many people’s lives.
We’d love to know what you think of these latest articles – email us and we’ll publish the best.
