    Story

    This season kids are hoping to send over 1000 cards of kindness & hampers. Winter is full of celebrations but many remain isolated the season. We want them to know that someone cares, bring a smile & here continues this Cards of Kindness Cardathon, starting 8th December.

    With your kind support hampers are being created with supermarket vouchers, toiletries, activity packs, notebooks and household items for families from Leicester & Nottingham Young Lives vs Cancer Social Workers. The families, with children receiving cancer treatment, will be sponsored to stay close to hospitals at Billy's House, Nottingham (£38 per night) during treatments.

    THE CHALLENGE

    Over 550 incredible Kids from Leicester including from St John the Baptist and Forest Lodge Academy Schools have started writing and sending over 1000 Cards of Kindness to people living in Nursing Homes, Learning Disability Centres, elderly, Foodbanks, 999 Frontline & your UK nominated organisations that keep us going. The fantastic kids from Gartree High School will be raising donations as part of their Christmas Jumper Day next week and we thank you for supporting them all.

    HELPED SO FAR

    So far the kids have helped community wellbeing and raised over £7000 for charities: Rainbows Children's Hospice, Young Lives vs Cancer, Bridge Homeless to Hope, Sickle Cell Society, ADRA-UK, Foodbanks, Mind & kids' interactive wellbeing workshops.

    All your donations will be split equally between sponsoring days at Billy's House and kids cards of kindness wellbeing projects.

    THANK-YOU

    We thank you all for your generosity and support, artist Ian Mitchell for co-designing cards, The Rotary Club of Leicester Satellite Club, Leicester & Nottingham Social Services and the caring teams at Billy's House, Nottingham and all the incredible children of St John the Baptist Primary, Forest Lodge Academy and Gartree High Schools and Leicester.
