“Please donate to our Christmas Appeal this year – Thank You” 


This year has continued to be challenging for everyone.  Since the last Christmas Appeal, we have continued to support families living in poverty in additional ways whilst helping over 450 children.

A big thank you to all of those who have already sent in their kind donation for this year’s Christmas Appeal.  We have raised £10,551 to date!  Please continue to send in your donations as these make sure a huge difference to the children we support.

As you are already aware, the families we help usually come to us following a traumatic event including bereavement, terminal illness diagnosis or the breakdown of an abusive relationship. The major issue facing our families is how the children cope in these situations so we seek to let children be children and enjoy a normal family life.

The monies raised from this Christmas Appeal will be used to help pay for new winter coats and shoes for each disadvantaged child of a seafarer we support. Last year our winter clothing grant was £55 for every child we helped on our scheme throughout the United Kingdom.

We currently help nearly 400 children and the large majority of our families do not have a car; this makes the winter clothing grant essential as the children walk and travel on public transport each day.

We understand that in the current economic situation people do not have large amounts of spare money, however any donation no matter how small would be greatly appreciated. Please click on the red Donate button on the right side of this page. We thank you for your ongoing support of the Society.
