MAD Days

Volunteer with like-minded people and see what you can achieve in a day or an afternoon.

Make a Difference days are when group of our volunteers head out into the local community and take part in many different activities including mural painting,  kite-surfing, beach cleans and helping out at the Alzheimer’s Memory Café.

We provide the transport to the events and will even bring the biscuits! And if you aren’t tempted by snacks maybe clothing will do it for you, complete five MAD days and you will receive a SUBU t-shirt or collect a hoodie if you take part in ten days.


This is what some of our students enjoyed about their MAD day:

"The people who were involved were exceptionally friendly and the fun atmosphere really made the day enjoyable."  


"The best part was getting to talk with the care home residents; it was great to see how much they really appreciated us being there."


"I learnt new skills and found a new interest I never knew I had!"
