Story

Imagine going to sleep on Christmas Eve in a makeshift bed.  

Imagine waking up on Christmas morning cold and hungry.

Imagine being unable to cook your children a hot meal, let alone a Christmas dinner, because your cooker is broken and you can’t afford a new one.

This is the reality for so many local families this Christmas. Illness, family breakdown and redundancy can all act as tipping points and create real hardship.

You can give a Christmas gift this year that will change lives - and not just for Christmas. 

For every £10 donated you will help access £50 from charitable trusts that are available to help local families in need which means you can give an extra special gift this Christmas.

£5 donation = £25

You would heat a home for a week

£10 donation = £50

You would feed a family for a week

£25 donation = £125

You would buy a child a bed

£50 donation = £250

You would buy a cooker for a family

£100 donation = £500

You would buy essential items to set up a family home after a period of homelessness
