Situation

The problem the project is trying to solve is children living in poverty. Christmas should be a magical time for all children and their families, but unfortunately this is not the case. Many families cannot celebrate Christmas due to the cost. In many homes their are no Christmas Tree's, decorations or anything to reflect that its Christmas. Children do not get a chance to visit Santa and receive a gift as most grotto's are based in the town centre and the cost is way beyond what they can afford

Solution

We will provide a Christmas Grotto for up to 200 children living in the Croxteth area, ensuring all children get a chance to meet Santa and receive a gift. We will target 100 families and approx 200 children and help them get food, decoration, toys and new PJ's. We would like to see these families get a £25 shopping voucher to ensure they will get a Christmas dinner. We want to help decorate homes with Christmas trees and make Christmas a magical time for children in our community. Please help.
