Christmas gifts that change lives

There will be lots going on over the festive period to help you change vulnerable lives this Christmas 

We are really excited about our special Christmas event, our Festive Frolic and Pooch Parade, taking place on Sunday 12th December at our Proud Business Supporters Bawdon Lodge Farm.  For more details click here.

Our 2021 range of Christmas cards and our new 2022 calendar – which will help to brighten your 2022 as well as the people’s whose lives you will help to change through your purchase – are available now in our online shop.

The news is packed with stories of how tough this winter is going to be for those most in need in our communities.  As furlough ends and with further job losses expected, as long COVID continues to impact many lives, as the bonus Universal Credit payment is withdrawn, as food and utility prices rise as people go into the months when they may usually have to  juggle between ‘eating and heating’ due to financial hardship, together we can all make a difference and help local lives.

More details of our 2021 Christmas fundraising campaign will be shared here soon.

In the meantime, if you have an idea or would like to get involved in making a difference this Christmas, please email rachel.markham@charity-link.org 

Remember that by giving a donation, you will be helping to provide a very special gift this Christmas – as we all deserve to be warm, safe and fed – at Christmas, and always.

Whatever you give, you will make a big difference:

Your £5 donation will help to heat a home for a week

Your £10 donation will help to feed a family for a week

Your £25 donation will buy a bed for a child in need

Your £40 donation will buy a cooker for a vulnerable local family

Your £100 donation will provide essentials for family who’ve experienced homelessness

This possible because for every £10 you donate, we can access £50 from charitable trusts that are available to help local families in need.
