I work for a software company three days a week and on the other two days I provide unpaid help to various charities. Am I able to deduct the travelling expenses to and from the charity projects in my tax return?

Unfortunately not as these are "personal expenses" If you donate to the charity then you can deduct the amounts donated provided they give you a PBO/NPC certificate.
