We need our friends to
give our children all
they need . . . please
say you'll help.

The festive season’s here – can you believe it? The hype’s certainly reached our children!

And thanks to our caring friends they can look forward to a fun-filled Christmas.

As someone who cares about our children’s welfare we know you’ll be glad to hear that our boys and girls will have happy holidays. 

But to be honest, the New Year’s a concern for us.

You see with the New Year comes ‘back to school’ – which means school uniforms, stationery, sports kits and extramural activities. And let’s not forget the fruit and healthy lunchbox treats.

Can we count on your help with your online donation here?

Your support here will mean that our children can start the new school year with confidence, knowing they have all they need to shine at school. And what’s more, they wont have to worry about sticking out as ‘different’ – or being seen as the ‘kids from the home’.

If you agree that our children deserve the support to be the best they can be – please make your contribution here.

Thank you so much for all you do to give our youngsters the opportunities they deserve.

Wishing you and your loved ones a safe and happy Christmas.

Gifts in kind and willing volunteers are also hugely appreciated. Please click here for more information, or telephone the home on
