Action for Children: #HourforGood

On October 29th, the clocks go back – and we all get an extra hour in our day. Preloved are supporting Action for Children who are asking you to use this extra #HourForGood – and in the process, change a child’s life forever.

You see, for disadvantaged children, an hour of support at the right time can change the course of their entire life for the better. So why not use the extra hour you’ll gain to do something fun and worthwhile?

Join Action For Children on Sunday 29th October 2017 and use your #HourForGood. All you need to do is to pledge your hour, pick a fundraising activity, and get cracking. And don’t worry if you’re unavailable on the Sunday, you can use this hour any time to carry out your fundraising event.
