Christmas Update 2020 – Keeping Spirits High!

Due to the tier restrictions with regards to Coronavirus, we had to think of a different way to bring christmas joy to our families. We wasn’t able to provide a face-to-face activity which is always a brilliant way to end the year. Instead, we decided to create gift bags for 200 of our families on our system. Due to our planned fundraising events not going ahead for 2020, we were only able to create a restricted number of gift bags. We receieved an overwhelming response from our families, lots of smiles and laughter all around!

Alongside our christmas gift bags, we were lucky enough to have a local family decorate their front garden and raise money for Little Heroes! A massive thank you to Sharon, Bob and all of their visitors for their kind donation of £345.00 raised via their festive display in Honiton Road, Southend on Sea!

First of all would like to say a massive thank you to the elves, to Bex and Chris from Chris Toy Box and Bouncy Castle Hire and many of their customers who helped to turn a standard gift into an amazing gift with an overflow of donations… just check out these pictures!!!

Also thank you to Shared Space for donating towards the gifts too 🎁🎁🎁 And of course the big man himself – Santa 🎅

We have seen an array of emotions, but we would like to remind everyone that you are stronger than you think you are and we are all still here for each other, although we have not maybe seen one another as much as we would have hoped to. Hopeful that Santa will ensure our hub is complete and the New Year will bring new hope and opportunities for each and everyone of you… remember the best is yet to come “Never Say Never!”
