The combination of soaring bills and stagnating incomes means families are experiencing a sharp drop in living standards. When before the crisis many families had to choose between eating or heating their home, many are now unable to afford to do either.
From the overwhelm when entering a supermarket due to rising food costs and prices, to unaffordable energy prices, for many families the winter months and Christmas in particular are going to bring fear and distress with parental stress becoming unmanageable, and their children will notice and feel it, putting huge strain on family dynamics and ultimately mental wellbeing.
Christmas is going to be incredibly difficult and triggering for so many, and it is going to affect far too many children, can you help us to provide support for parents that could make a big impact and difference?
As part of the Pledge by EventWell programme we are appealing for event professionals to make up and donate a child’s Christmas stocking that we can send to a family in need.
The stocking should be made up to no more than the total value of £25, alternatively you can send smaller gifts to us valued at £5, £10 or £15 for us to add to a stocking.
Stocking Age Groups we are looking for:
Please use the form below to let us know that you would like to pledge a stocking so we can send you the details that you will need. We would like all stockings to have reached us by Friday 9th December so we can get them to families in need in time for Christmas.
