You changed lives this Christmas



Ian Richards,
Head of Crisis at Christmas

'Thanks to your generosity, we’ve been able to adapt our frontline services and give people a Crisis Christmas plus access to our year-round services, so they can leave homelessness behind for good. Thank you - we’re extremely grateful.”

Thank you for welcoming people at Christmas

Christmas was very different this year, but thanks to your amazing support we managed to provide thousands of people with food, friendship and a place to stay. The looks on people’s faces when they saw their rooms was wonderful.

You gave people food, a shower, a safe space to stay – the basics we all take for granted. And with space to breathe, people could engage with Crisis services and enjoy fun and entertainment too – the same as everyone else at Christmas. Thank you so much.
