Extra support for 160 children this Christmas

We have always had close links with our local schools and throughout the year provide help to families referred to us. 

This Christmas, bearing in mind the financial pressures we are all experiencing, we introduced a new initiative focussed on families whose children receive free school meals.  In response our partner schools referred 66 families to us that included 160 children. 

In the week before Christmas, thanks to all the incredible people who have been so generous again this year donating both food and money, we were able to provide each family with enough tinned and packaged food for seven days as well as a few Christmas goodies.
