Is there a not-for-profit organisation out there who could use a volunteer on 25 December?

Yes. The Helping Arms project are putting on a spread for people who would otherwise be on their own on Xmas Day.
Google 'Helping Arms eco project'. Contact details at the bottom.

There are dozens of not-for-profit organisations that would love you to volunteer all year round. Why volunteer just on 25th December?

@bongo - you do have a point of course, but any offer is a positive one, fair play to Shameus, not many people would leave their loved ones on Christmas Day to help the disadvantaged.

Maybe shameus wants to receive some company on the 25 as well help others. I can understand that.

Allegedly successful in business, acres of contract work in esoteric digital professions (programming, analysis) but I've been on my own at Christmas a couple of times because of last-minute changes to schedules or moving to pursue opportunity. So I, too, drove into the nearest city and offered to do washing-up, cleaning and basic kitchen stirring, etc., for projects involving homeless, chronically ill, couch-surfing or disadvantaged citizens over Christmas week when just about everything else shut down. They get my donations to this day. Go with an attitude to do everything and listen, and you will always remember the experience for all the right reasons, and you will likely continue to help in the future.
