We were delighted to have raised £2090 this year from our Christmas fundraising, which included the sales of our Christmas Direct cards sent to children in India and our fabulous handmade Christmas cards. If you would like to get involved in our Christmas fundraising next year, please do get in touch.

Our wonderful volunteers, Helen and Angela, were stitching for months to produce the 489 handmade cards we sold this year, for the first time in two different styles – classic and traditional. These spread our work to mantelpieces across the country, and indeed across the world!

These donations funded our Christmas celebrations in India, held just before Christmas. Each child received a new outfit – much needed for growing children! – and transport for any of their remaining family members to visit for the annual celebration. Everyone was served a hot meal together and enjoyed seasonal performances from the children.

Here are some photos of the children’s performance and the Christmas meal with visiting family:
