2020 has been quite a year!
As we were preparing for Christmas last year, we couldn’t have imagined the unprecedented events that we would all face.
As we approach Christmas this year, many of us are discussing how we’ll get to spend time with loved ones or how we’ll get our Christmas shopping done without going to the shops.
The harsh reality of the pandemic is that for many, Christmas 2020 will be VERY different; job losses, isolation, illness and business closures mean that even more local people are facing severe hardship this winter.
Together we can make Christmas – and the months ahead – brighter for local people and children in need, whether or not they are experiencing hardship due to COVID-19.
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.
If you prefer you can also send a cheque, made payable to ‘Charity Link’ and return to: Christmas Gifts, Charity Link, 20a Millstone Lane, Leicester, LE1 5JN

You can also purchase ‘Christmas Gifts’ via our online shop at www.charity-link.org/shop
If you are buying a ‘Christmas gift’ as a present in kind for a relative for friend and would like us to post a certificate to you on which you can add the recipients name to give to them at Christmas to let them know of the Christmas Gift which has been donated on their behalf, please email firstname.lastname@example.org after you have placed your order and we will send this to you.
However you donate, and no matter how much you give, a sincere thank you for helping to change lives!

*All funds received for our Christmas campaign will be used in general support of our work; your donation will help enable us to provide essential items, such as those listed, to individuals and families experiencing hardship this winter.
