RCT Christmas Appeal
Every year RCT collect donations to provide Christmas Hampers and shoe boxes for the people we work with who are in greatest need.
We ask our supporters to donate any items they can that are suitable to add to our hamper appeal. This year we will be running our popular “Lovely Ladies” shoebox appeal. This is to support the vulnerable women we work with who for one reason or another do not have children living with them. We are asking for donations of small gift like items such as body sprays, candle's, gloves, hairbrushes, soaps, stationary items; small gifts; biscuits, sweets and deodorants that we can place into a shoebox, wrap and distribute. Christmas cards are also added to help them feel special at a time of year that is incredibly difficult for them.
We will also be holding zoom christmas parties for all our young people so are appealing for anything that can go into party bags or help them to celebrate with us online. The idea is we deliver a party bag, hat, streamers, bubbles with a toy/game as a gift, then hold a music or quiz party online. Hopefully that will make up for them having to stay at home and keep us all safe.
If we are able to have a face to face party these will be done in small groups and still need supplies.
It’s a really simple idea and anyone can get involved. We are always keen to grow our network of amazing supporters. If you are a local Business it’s a great way of helping those in your local community at a time when they need it most, whilst simultaneously meeting your organisational Corporate Social Responsibility Objectives!
