Bags of Hope
Why we need your help
Leicestershire Cares is a charity who brokers partnerships between the community, business and local government so that nobody is left behind. On the back of a very successful Collect 4 Christmas appeal, we are now raising funds for a special ‘Bags of Hope’ campaign for children across all our local communities in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland.
Lockdown 3 dashed the hopes of many school children who really needed the stability, refuge, access to meals, activity and socialisation that our education system provides on top of any learning. A comment that came up time and time again as we were distributing the Christmas #Togetherwecare bags was that children and young people were particularly feeling many micro-effects of the pandemic and their mental well-being had deteriorated.
So, with the Easter holidays approaching in a few weeks, the charity’s Community Development team have been thrown into action. What better way to bring a smile than to receive some festive chocolate, a craft kit and an activity pack in one of the Leicestershire Cares environmentally aware ‘bags for life’. The team will be working with local businesses, partners and support groups to collectively deliver this amazing campaign.
However, YOU don’t need to be local to support the appeal so why not donate a few pence or ££££ today. A donation of £20 will provide 2 ‘Bags of Hope’ each containing some Easter crafts such as paint your own mug or an Easter bag, cookie cutters, tic-tac-toe game, or colouring book. It will also include some activity items such as a ball, skipping rope or a yo-yo and the absolute must for most children………some chocolate!
The ‘Bags of Hope’ will be distributed on the week leading up to Easter so don’t leave it too late to donate. You can catch up on the appeal via Leicestershire Cares Twitter @LeicsCares, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or our website www.leicestershirecares.co.uk for this and all the other great projects that we deliver in the community.
