In lieu of shoeboxes - Christmas fundraiser

150% Raised

It’s Christmas Time (well, nearly…) Over the last few years, the Consumer legal team has arranged shoe box collections for Home Start, who provide support to families across the country in times of need, and at Christmas time provide presents to children whose families otherwise can’t afford them.

Message from Home Start:
"Christmas is often a challenging time for our families, with some needing to forgo gifts for their children entirely in order to put food on the table, and we expect this year to be no different with many being isolated from friends and family. It is amazing seeing the joy your gift boxes have brought to children in the past, and we would love to be able to spread this same joy this year with your help."

A shoebox collection will be difficult this year, but...

That's where YOU come in!

You can make a massive difference by donating to this fundraising page in lieu of giving a shoebox. Home Start Westminster has successfully applied to be part of the Coronavirus Fund, meaning any donations up to £75 before midday on Monday 9th November will be matched (amazing!!!).
Please give anything you feel you can, and let’s make Christmas special again for all the children this fundraiser will support.
