Every gift we receive for our Christmas appeal helps to make a real difference to children this Christmas. We are overwhelmed with the extreme generosity of local people that despite the cost of living crisis are still going above and beyond to help those that need it this Christmas. It really is a magical time of year and we would like to thank each and every one of you that has donated.

Sometimes a gift means just that little bit more, sometimes it brings a tear to our eyes. We have supported a young girl called Jessie with an iPad for school and then she was sponsored by a local company for a magical break to Disney through the charity. This week Jessie has done an amazing thing and donated all of these Ty teddies to help bring a little happiness to children who have to spend Christmas in hospital. Sometimes, the word thank you is never enough. – but thank you Jessie for your kindness and for thinking of others this Christmas time.
