Launch of Christmas appeal 2021

Today (Tuesday 30th November) and to mark ‘Giving Tuesday’ we launch this years Christmas appeal.

There are many ways you can change vulnerable lives this Christmas… 

The news is packed with stories of how tough this winter is going to be for those most in need in our communities.  As  COVID continues to impact many lives, as the bonus Universal Credit payment is withdrawn, as food and utility prices rise as people go into the months when they may usually have to  juggle between ‘eating and heating’ due to financial hardship,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.

Via last year’s Christmas campaign our amazing supporters helped over 1,000 people in need during December 2020 and January 2021, including nearly 400 children. Items provided included over 120 cookers, 100 fridge-freezers and 71 beds during the period.

This year the need is just as great, if not greater. Whatever you can give, your gift really will change lives.

GIVE A DONATION TO CHANGE LIVES NOW VIA OUR ONLINE CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN PAGE 

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 is due to our unique way of working which means that for every  £10 you donate, we can access £50 from charitable trusts that are available to help local families in need – all of that £50 goes to provide essential items and support.

For other ways to lend your support, including buying vouchers for food, beds and other essentials and our festive event on the12th December, visit www.charity-link.org/christmas
