We received another sad request yesterday (one of many this week), where a family of 5 (including a 10 month old baby) had been housed in a local Travel Lodge after being made homeless. We had to try and think of foods we could buy for them with just a kettle to make meals! Can you imagine living like that? We organised a food shop from Asda to help them cope a bit better, and we hope they are housed quickly, as it must be very difficult for them. We will continue to support them during the Christmas period.
We plan on providing over 700 brand new toys/gifts to underprivileged children this year, and 100+ Christmas Food Boxes. If anyone can donate a brand new toy/gift or food items such as mince pies, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, crackers for cheese, pickle, boxes of sweets/chocolates, boxes of biscuits, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sugar, tinned ham, custard etc, please message us either on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If anyone works for a Company, would you consider having a collection around the office for us?
Thank you to each and every one of you who helped man a stall, provided a trade stall, donated raffle prizes, made cakes and came and spent money at our fayre today. We raised a massive total of £986.00!!!! This is going to make Christmas so special for the underprivileged families we are helping this year in Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch!!
