We believe that in someone's hour of need, your support can be the most powerful force for positive change. While this Winter we continue our commitment to delivering everyday essentials such as nappies, period products, toiletries, warm coats, and clothing, our #TwelveGiftOfKindness campaign introduces the gifts that go beyond the material. When you donate £10 you’re not just helping us deliver a box containing crucial items such as blankets, bedding, and essential clothing and footwear, you’re also delivering an invaluable gift for those who need it most, providing comfort, hope, and a renewed sense of purpose.
