Help us keep supporting local families

One of our valued trustees, Angelo, launched our Christmas Appeal last week, with the help of the Brayley family. Find out why we need your support and how you can help.

We need to raise vital funds to get us through the increasingly hard times caused by COVID-19.

Normally, we’d be selling raffle tickets and organising Mince Pie Mingles at this time of the year. Our Christmas fundraising normally raises about £3,000 for our charity. But, we can’t do any of our usual events!

We have helped eight families since lockdown and another two need our support. That will make it four families this month alone. Each family receives an £800 grant, so we’ll have given out £8,000 in total since the start of the pandemic. There are lots of ways you can help us to continue our work supporting North Devon families, who are struggling with the awful reality of having a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

Text CAREFORKIDSXMAS3 to 70085 to donate just £3. Texts cost £3 plus your standard messaging rate. If you want to text to donate £3 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text CAREFORKIDSXMASNOINFO3 to 70085.
