#12giftsforchristmas 2019

Last year our #12giftsforchristmas activities raised over £3,500 and donated numerous food, toys, gifts, bikes and furniture items to highlight and support individuals and charities close to our hearts. Below is a log of what we’re getting up to this year on the count down to Christmas.


#3: Jumper for joy!

With the arrival of Save the Children’s ‘Let’s do this!’ pack, Adam has us in full fundraising mode. Having supported this charity in 2018 as one of our #12giftsforchristmas, we are all determined to outdo ourselves this year with our jumper creations, baking and, quite frankly, using the tried and tested ‘bucket’ to gather these much needed funds.

Please support our antics and the difference this charity so obviously makes by texting TEAMEBY2019 to 70050 or, I you prefer to make a donation online, we have a justgiving page setup (please click link) to donate £2 or more if you’re feeling generous!

We will also be providing regular image updates to this blog on what we get up to.

Your £2 donation could change a child’s life: here are just a few examples of how

Jumper for joy


#2: Friendship – Gavin, Aileen and Fred

As part of last year’s #12giftsforchristmas, Gavin got in touch with Age UK, determined to become a ‘befriender’.

One year on and with over 40 visits made, enough flowers delivered to fill a shop and numerous cups of tea shared, we find that Gavin has caught the ‘befriender’ bug.

Meet Fred. Whilst Aileen was a bit camera shy, Fred, Gavin’s new friend, was happy to pose for us, even if Gavin’s explanation of needing an image for this blog made him glaze over!


#1: Transforming lives in every community

With #RemembranceDay just gone, our first #12giftsforchristmas remembers the work of the Salvation Army. Whilst we hope Gladys’ donation goes in some way to help them continue to be there for someone in need this Christmas, we’d encourage anyone to support their vital work with people in distress anytime of the year.
