Over 14 million people live in poverty in the UK, 4 million of those are children. Sadly, the reality for many families is that Christmas is a luxury they can't afford. This money will help to buy gifts for children who are facing a really difficult time over Christmas.

This charity helps people who are living in poverty and experiencing difficulty in their lives. They setup the first nationwide foodbank in 1989. They provide family food parcels, run a Safe Space for rough sleepers, help people who are struggling financially through debt and benefit advice clinics and offer support to lonely and isolated individuals through their Community Cafe. All this is done with charity donations and the help of 500 volunteers. It's a local charity that turns 'chaos into contribution' and gives a helping hand to those who need it.

Thanks for your support x

Please note all money raised from this appeal will be going towards the Christmas 2022 appeal, not 2021, as was originally listed. Thank you (Team Derby City Mission)
