At Derby City Mission, we believe in spreading the warmth of the holiday season to every child in need. Last year, thanks to your generous support, we made a lasting impact in the lives of 889 children who would have otherwise gone without Christmas presents.

This year, with your help, we aim to reach even more! The need is greater, and we're determined to make Christmas special for as many children as possible. The heartfelt words of a family from our previous campaign perfectly capture the impact of your generosity: "You do not understand how much difference the gifts for our  children made at Christmas. They were so happy. We cannot thank you enough for your support."

Gift a Smile with Dignity of Choice!

In 2023, we're taking a unique approach. We're giving parents and guardians the dignity of choice. Children over 36 months will have the opportunity to receive gifts aligned with their interests. This year, we're introducing five gift categories: Sensory toys, Imaginative play, Lego/Meccano, Arts & Craft, and Bath/Personal care, allowing parents to choose a gift that resonates with their child's passion.
