Christmas Should Be About More Than Survival

Wood Street Mission has launched its 2014 Christmas Appeal – “Christmas should be about more than survival”.

The appeal features a T-Rex cartoon with a Santa hat urging supporters to help local families struggling to make ends meet by donating to its Christmas Appeal.

Here are some ways you can help the Appeal:

1. Make a financial donation. We want to raise £20,000 to help more than 4000 local children this Christmas. Donate £5 by texting ROAR to 70500.

2. Donate a new toy, book or puzzle suitable for a child up to early teens. Suggested toy value £10.

3. Donate non-perishable food goods suitable for young families. We distribute food "hampers" to more than 2000 families. Add some pasta, meat or tinned fruit to your shopping.

4. Why not organise a collection, raffle or carol service in your office, community group or church?
