As Christmas approaches, at Watson Ramsbottom we’re thinking of those children who Santa may not visit.
Women’s refuges provide support to women at times they need it most. We have several in our local area, all of which are assisting women and children escaping domestic abuse, violence or threats. In such situations, Christmas presents can be far from priority.
Led by Kalya in our Family Department, we want to take this additional pressure off those affected in this way, and ensure that every child in our local women’s refuges receives a present without exception.
To make this happen – WE NEED YOUR HELP
We’re looking for donations of toys for children aged from new born up to 12/13 years.
We will also gladly accept any gifts or toiletries we can give to the women as well as their children.
Please note that as we are looking to provide Christmas presents, we are looking for new or unopened products in this instance; any gifts donated should not be second hand.
If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at any of our local offices.
Please however ensure these reach us on or before Monday 16th December as we will need to give the staff at the refuges enough time to allocate and wrap them.
Thanks in advance to all that help with this – It will make a huge difference to those in our area who need it the most.
