Christmas Appeal Underway

Christmas should be about more than survival. But for one in three local children whose families struggle on a day-to-day basis to make ends meet, sadly it is just that.

We want to ensure all children can join in the fun and festivities by giving their families food and toys to help with the expense of the season.

In 2014 we helped over 2000 families and 4,500 children at Christmas time and this year we expect the numbers referred to us for help to grow.

Help our Christmas Appeal by donating non-perishable food, sweet treats, and new toys and books suitable to give as presents to children up to the age of 12. Or give to our Appeal online at

Our van is collecting Christmas donations from homes, offices and churches around Manchester and Salford from now up until Friday 11 December. Call 0161 834 3140 to arrange a collection. Last day for dropping off donations on the door is Monday 21 December.  

Download our Christmas Appeal poster and leaflet here and get friends, families and colleagues involved!
