Christmas is coming to Love, Amelia

The Countdown to Christmas is on!

Christmas Wishes

Can you help to fulfil a families Christmas wish this year? Check out the wishes received from families we are supporting this year

Our elves here at Love, Amelia are in full Christmas spirit as we launch our second Christmas appeal.  Last year we distributed gifts to 243 people and we expect the demand to be event greater this year due to COVID and additional hardships the families we support have faced.

Once again we will be working closely with referral partners to identify local families in need to provide them with gifts and goodies this Christmas. We will provide gifts for children of all ages as well as their parents/carers as we feel they also deserve a little treat after such a troubling couple of years.

We ask families to share the interests and wishes of the child has so we can match gifts we know they will love.  The gifts we provide will be the main or only gifts some children we support will receive, so its important we get it right.  

We will also gift a roll of wrapping paper so the parents / carer can wrap the child’s presents themselves.  We want them to feel part of the process, knowing what their little one will wake up with on Christmas morning,

Of course we dont want parents / carers to miss out either, so our elves will wrap a little surprise for them too.  Its important to acknowledge parents/carers but also for the child to see their grown ups acknowledged with a little something on Christmas morning.

How can you get involved?

 Our Christmas campaign a real community effort, bringing together families to make Christmas a magical time for all children. There are plenty of ways to get involved to make this Christmas the most magical one yet:
