It's another record breaker as this year we raised a fantastic £3,887.23! Bringing our total since the appeal began, 15 years ago, to £47,759.03!
Once again the charity representatives were overwhelmed with the piles of gifts. They spoke of children in the homeless hostel and children whose parents are suffering imprisonment or from mental illness or substance abuse who would receive their only gifts from our students. Elderly people alone at Christmas and families without the means to shop for themselves and homeless young people who would now receive warmth, literally in the form of socks, gloves and sleeping bags, and symbolically in the knowledge that our students are thinking of them. Thanks so much to all our students for all they have done to raise such a phenomenal amount and thanks also on behalf of the 140 people who will now experience the true joy of Christmas.
