Put a child first this Christmas

Do you know a child who doesn’t want a gift at Christmas? We certainly don’t!

That why we’re hoping you’ll reach out to St Mary’s Childrens’ Home today, by making an online donation to treat our children to a Christmas gift.

Because at Christmas, every child needs something special!

Our children come from troubled backgrounds. Many have experienced deeply traumatic events, and have been abused, orphaned or abandoned.

And at a time when the airwaves are filled with messages about family togetherness and loving kindness, our children are often weighed down by thoughts of their unhappy past.

Your gift, made online by clicking here, will truly help lift their spirits.

We couldn’t provide for these children all year round without the volunteering efforts, outpouring of generosity and ongoing support from our donors.

Unfortunately, once all the essentials have been paid for, it’s not often that we have enough left over to spoil the children.

Your gift will give a lift to our bank balance, so that have can afford gifts for our children … and hopefully an excursion or two to keep them occupied during the long summer holiday.

So please put a St Mary’s child at the top of your Christmas list by making a donation here. Your gift will bring much joy.

Thank you!
