Spread festive joy to families facing domestic abuse

Every child deserves a gift to open on Christmas day but sadly, for some families this isn't always possible.

We’re a charity called Centre 56 based in Liverpool, supporting children, parents and carers who have suffered, or are at risk of domestic abuse or crisis situation.

We'd love to bring joy to the lives of those we support who have faced domestic abuse this winter with some festive treats, but we need your help!

Our team want to buy personalised Christmas gifts for every child we look after that will make them happy and support their development, and to provide winter packs for family members in need.

Food poverty is also a major concern, with many people in our community struggling to afford meals - especially around this time of year - which is why we'd like to gift our families with food hampers and host a Christmas dinner at our centre.

We need YOUR help to raise £2,500, please donate online at centre56.enthuse.com/cf/spreadjoy

Here’s how your support could spread a little joy:

  • £5 supports us to make gift packs for parents and guardians
  • £15 covers the cost of a personalised gift for a child we support
  • £20 enables us to give FOUR children a Christmas dinner
  • £25 supports a family with a food hamper
  • £50 ensures TEN children enjoy a festive meal or FIVE family members have winter packs
  • £100 means we can give FOUR families food hampers over Christmas

Claire Essame, Centre 56 Service Manager, said: “The festive period can be challenging for many families, especially those we work with.

“For some people fleeing domestic abuse or crisis, they may leave with nothing but the clothes they’re wearing and little or no money to even think about Christmas presents.

“But your support and kindness will help to bring joy to our children and families on Christmas Day.”

We can't thank you enough for your support! This will mean so much to the little ones, parents and carers we support.
