DONATIONS OF MONEY

 

We are very grateful to accept donations of money at any time of year, but particularly in the run up to Christmas when the expenses of running Christmas Care start to mount.

How to donate money

As a small charity, we have always been immensely grateful for the generous donations from both individuals and local businesses.
