I volunteer for Giving World, a small national charity. We take essential life items, like household cleaning products, clothes and toiletries and distribute them to 13.4 million people in the UK who live below the poverty threshold. Child poverty in the UK is an astonishing 31%, that raises to 47% in some areas of the North of England.
Last year Giving World helped Santa deliver 47,000 toys to children, and 184,000 items of brand new clothing, like a warm winter coat, to families in the UK. Plus 161,000 household essentials to 130,000 low income families. Saving 1,156 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
For every £10 raised we can help 16 children in need in the UK. Please donate generously, we would really appreciate it.
