Festive Message

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

There was a fantastic response to the appeal from old and new supporters and over 10000 toys and 20 tons of food have now been given out to local families.

Overall 4,506 children and 2082 families were referred for help and we have had lots of touching feedback about the difference the help makes.

Our Christmas book club party yesterday was also a big success - mayhem at times but 140 kids loved it and went home with a lot of happy memories, as well as 3000 books!

It is sad so many families need help but wonderful to be able to put smiles on children’s faces, particularly at this time of year, and we could not do this without your generosity.

Christmas should be about more than survival and it is for thousands of kids whose lives are often difficult, thanks to our supporters

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year - and now the final word goes to the kids!
