Sailors’ Children’s Society Christmas Appeal 2023

Sailors’ Children’s Society is supporting almost 500 children living throughout the UK with long-term emotional and financial support. Their families are in economic crisis as well as emotional crisis because of a bereavement, diagnosis of a terminal or life-limiting illness or family breakdown. Christmas is an especially difficult time for the children we support.

You can help us make Christmas a little brighter by making a donation to our Christmas fundraiser allowing us to provide our families with Christmas dinners and a gift for each child as well as a small grant to help pay for gas and electricity over the Christmas period. Thank you for any donation you feel you can give as it will ensure lots of smiling faces come Christmas morning.
