Community Links 41st Christmas Appeal

Total raised


Total raised (+ Gift Aid)


Community Links facilitates an extensive network of services, activities and clubs for the whole community year round. 

At Christmas each year, we organise an appeal, which is now in its 41st year, that aims to both: 

i. Provide for each child referred to the appeal a Christmas stocking of new gifts, specific to their age, needs, abilities and most wished for gift to open on Christmas morning. 

ii. Raise funds to support our year round work, throughout 2019 with children, young people and families in need. 

The children and families are referred to Links by a unique combination of all the areas family support, care and welfare agencies, a combination that ensures that the appeal reaches out to and helps the areas most disadvantaged, vulnerable and at risk children, who are not being helped by anyone else and who, without the appeals help, really would wake up on Christmas morning to an empty stocking and another day just the same as every other. 

Every child will be experiencing their own set of problems and issues, however all the children helped will be experiencing the ravages of poverty on a daily basis, compounded by multiple problems and issues. 

In addition to ensuring that our areas most disadvantaged, vulnerable and at risk children and families enjoy a real Christmas this year, your kindness will also help us to maintain our year round support services and activities for our areas most at risk and vulnerable children and their families.

Thank you for your support.
