Give a child a Christmas 2022
Once again we are working with Time FM for their Give a child a Christmas campaign. GoFundMe link
Last year was very successful:
The local shops who participated in the discount scheme included Storky Baby & Children’s Wear, The Entertainer (Mercury Mall), the toy stall in the Liberty and The Works.
We also worked with our friends at the Romford Shopping Hall and received discounts from Hande Made and Explore Accessories, as well as shopping in some of our other favourite stores such as B&M, Home Bargains and Asda.
Our thanks go to all the above for their support and generous discounts. Julie Frost said
"We have loved working on this appeal again this year with our friends at Time FM. It really has been amazing to see the generosity of our local community and the Time FM listeners. I am also extremely grateful to all the stores that gave us discounts and to be able to re-invest all the money back into our local shops at what is still such a difficult time for them all."
Agencies that benefitted from the appeal included, LBBD Social Services Team and Hostels, LBH Social Services, Salvation Army, LBBD Schools, Peabody Trust, Gingerbread Society, ELHAP in Woodford Green, The RJ Mitchel school and several families in need.
Sales Manager at Time FM, Tom Goldsmith said
"The generosity of our listeners has been amazing. There are a lot of underprivileged children in our area and year after year the local people go out of their way to buy an extra present or two. We’d like to thank everyone for their efforts and for helping to bring smiles to lots of children’s faces this Christmas."
