Thank You Supporters !

Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Appeal, Christmas Should Be About More Than Survival.

There was a huge response to the campaign from old and new supporters and we were able to distribute over 20 tonnes of food and 10,000 toys to families in time for the big day. Overall 4,507 children and 2,082 families received help with toys and food and we gave out over 3000 books at our Christmas Book Club Party.   

Our appeal received coverage in regional and national media helping raise awareness about child poverty and a giant advent calendar in the Northern Quarter generated funds, as well as headlines through the sale of 24 specially commissioned prints. Hundreds of businesses, as well as dozens of churches and schools contributed to the appeal and a restaurant, the Infamous Diner in the Northern Quarter, closed its doors one day to give families using our projects a fab meal and wonderful day out.
