Christmas Cheer

“Thanks so much. What a lovely gesture. I’m struggling financially at the moment so this means a lot”

“How wonderful, the present will go under the tree as we have not been able to do much this year for my child and are so grateful for this”.

“Our families were overwhelmed by the generosity and were very emotional with it all. Thank you so so much to you and all of your wonderful volunteers.”

Our Christmas Cheer Campaigns, previously run in 2020 and 2022 help local families who need a little support in these challenging times.

The project is essential and benefits an increasing number of children and families who need support and help. Working with 10+ schools in the Axe Valley catchment area and with the support of the local community, councillors and businesses, the project helped 108 families and 185 children in 2020 and 117 families and 213 children in 2022.

Using those who receive free school meals as a criteria, we put together a food package/hamper for each family along with a book (applicable to the child’s age), a family gift and blanket, along with vouchers for the Children to spend in local businesses.

In 2020 we raised over £6,400 for the project and in 2022 we raised over £10,000 thanks to everyone who supported via our crowdfunding campaign and donations as well as all those individuals and businesses in the community who contributed and supported in other ways.

The scheme is an overwhelming success with lots of positive feedback from schools and families.
