Sponsor a Child 2020

Why we need your help

We are looking for people to Sponsor a Child for going back to school in August. Most children return to school with a brand-new uniform, a jacket, school bag, stationery and footwear but sadly this just isn’t the case for all children. Can you help “Sponsor A Child” and together we can support a local child from a family experiencing financial hardship. Together we can make a difference in our local community. 


We ran this campaign last year and were blown away by the generosity and kindness of the sponsor packs we received. Last year’s campaign saw 389 people provide a uniform pack - which was truly overwhelming. This year the coronavirus will hit families hard and we expect the number of children needing our help to be greater than last year. We are therefore appealing for more Sponsors. 


Due to the current crisis the Sponsor a Child campaign will look a bit different this year.  With few shops being open and stock levels/range of stock/deliveries being unpredictable it will be tough for Sponsors to create packs as they did last year. In addition, and most importantly we want to keep our Sponsors safe and avoid putting them at unnecessary risk being out shopping and dropping off packs to us.  So, after a lot of consideration we have decided to ask our Sponsors to make a donation and we will create the uniform pack – we call it “you donate and we create”. We know our Sponsors love being allocated a child and buying all the items for the child but unfortunately, we just can’t operate the campaign like that this year. We hope you can understand why we have made this decision. 


This is our main fundraiser of the year and we are greatly relying on your support to help us cope with the increased demand for our service. Please help if you can.  We greatly appreciate any donation; every little bit of help and support is appreciated. 

  

All donations can be made via VirginMoneyGiving, we will then purchase the items for you and ensure a local child in West Lothian is donated a uniform pack paid for by you.  


Please share this post with friends, family and work colleagues so we can help as many children in West Lothian go back to school in August with the necessary uniform and equipment to take on the challenges of the new academic year. 

 

Thank you for all your support.
