The Avenues Youth Project: Christmas Fundraiser
You may remember in 2020, we collaborated with local W10 charity, The Avenues Youth Project. This wonderful charity works with children and young people, aged 8-18, from many different and diverse communities. Their trained staff offer hope and the kind of opportunities many of our own children take for granted. In 2020, we raised over £3000 in donations and were able to produce 100 gift parcels for local children. On top of that, we helped 10 high-need families by kitting them out with essential items such as bedding and kitchenware.
This year is going to be especially hard for many, so we want to help again. Every child deserves to feel loved and valued, especially at Christmas time.
Our target is to raise £4000 so we can help fund 200 Christmas presents for the children of The Avenues. We are calling upon your generosity once more to give back to the people in our community who are most in need, and make sure they have some joy at Christmas. The smallest of gestures can make a true difference to children from struggling families. We know times are tough right now, so we mean it when we say any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated.
Many thanks from The Cross and we wish you all a happy and healthy festive period.
