Make Christmas special for residents of Brigstock and Stonebridge House, CR7

Help us to get 80 men, 80 women toiletries gift packs / vouchers and 40 children’s art and craft packs!

Hope you’re well and safe! Like previous years, we are trying to make it a little special for refugee families and residents at Brigstock and Stonebridge House. Here is what we did:

This year, we aim to get:

  • 80 men, 80 women and 40 children gift packs
  • £5 vouchers Tesco, Poundland, Costa
  • Fund to buy pizza from Fireaway at 3pm 23rd and 24th Dec. Depend on funding, I hope we can get 20 pizza each day. Mario is always keen to support us and give us a huge discount but this year, we would love to be able to buy from him. He has done so much and support holiday school meal recently as well.
