This Christmas is going to be incredibly difficult for lots of local families. We’ve been in touch with local and national charities and organisations, and listed below are those that are looking for your help in the run-up to the festive period.
Please note we will update this blog regularly and add new charities and organisations as they announce their plans. If you would like to be added to the blog please email us at email@example.com
This Christmas hundreds of families will be living in emergency accommodation having fled violence and abuse. You can help to make this place of safety more comfortable and give families the opportunity to celebrate a Christmas free from domestic abuse by making a cash donation of giving vouchers or gift cards to be passed onto the families supported by IDAS.
You can also donate new items from the list below:
New bedding sets for children and adults, standard double & singles
Order a personalised Letter from Santa from the North Pole straight to your door and feel good doing your part for children with a suggested £5 donation. Choose from 8 different designs, and make your letter special with your child’s name, hobbies, friends and more.
Visit the NSPCC website for more information and to order your letter.

We want to help people to have as normal a Christmas as possible and so we would like to deliver presents to our customers too, focusing especially on making sure customers have something to give their children.
