Christmas, no matter where you are in the world or what you believe, is a time to share food, gifts, to enjoy each others company and relax with people you love.
But for women and children in refuge, or for families living in temporary accommodation Christmas can be a bitter reminder of what has happened to them, and what they have lost.
We want the best possible experience for women and children using our services at this time of year so with the help of our supporters we can ensure that we make it as special as it can be.
Please make a donation now. A cash donation gives us a fund to then purchase emergency gifts. Perhaps we have an older teenager in refuge and weve run out of teen appropriate gifts? This fund will help us with those last minute shopping trips.
We gather presents from November, and always aim to have a stock of Christmas presents for babies, children, teenagers and women available in our store room by the second week of December so they can be distributed by our elves well in advance of the special day.
So be a good elf, and elp us along the way; even the smallest gesture will mean a lot.
