Holiday Hope: Urgent Appeal

SOME KIDS ARE DREADING THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS

For many schoolchildren, the upcoming school holidays spell six weeks of fun and freedom. But right now, others are dreading the last day of school. 

They might be one of the 9 kids in every classroom who live in poverty, or one of the 20% of children who have a mental health problem or one of the 2 million who rely on free school meals. 

For these children, school is their safe haven. It’s the place where they’re fed, see people who care about them, and are protected from chaos they often experience whether that’s at home, in their own thoughts, or on the streets when they have nowhere else to go.  When schools close for six weeks… they can disappear. 

But with your help, we can see these children all summer – and give them hope.

Our local centres are full of caring staff who reach out to vulnerable children and families, making summer as fun as it should be. This can range from: 

  • Providing delicious meals 
  • Signposting practical support and guidance 
  • Organising fun group activities 
  • Opportunities to play with friends 

      Above all, we can keep them safe, and looked after. 

      HELP US FILL THE HOLIDAYS WITH HOPE

      School holidays are just around the corner. And with the cost-of-living crisis, more children than ever will need the support of our local centres. So please, help today.
