Give the gift of Christmas

Did you know there is a seasonal rise in incidents of domestic abuse over the Christmas period? And whilst for most of us, the festivities are a time for celebration with our nearest and dearest, for those in refuge, it can be extremely difficult, having had to flee their home at a moment’s notice for the safety of themselves and their children.

We need your help this December to create an authentic Christmas experience, by bringing families together to make new, happy memories and rebuild bonds that have been broken through the trauma of abuse. Your support will transform our Hub into a magical Christmas grotto to make the holidays special. For some of our service users, this will be the first Christmas they have experienced and so, with your help, we want to give women and children the Christmas they deserve. From giving and receiving gifts, to parties and festive activities, all the way through to a three course Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

Double your donation!

The Big Give Christmas challenge is BACK. Every donation made via the Big Give website from 12pm on 27th Nov to 12pm on 4th Dec will be DOUBLED, at no extra cost to you or the charity. Every donation will help to make Christmas special for those who really need it.

Be quick! This is available until the matched pot runs out!
