Christmas wishes cover
Mission To help as many people as possible in financial hardship. With food all year round.
we will be able to help people who have run out of food and can't afford to buy anymore.
Our principal objective is to provide Xmas activities in the form of a party and make it possible for local children to receive Xmas gifts and food parcels who otherwise would receive very little at Christmas.
Offering help support and advise and providing emergency food for people in crisis for a short length of time, helping families to get back on there feet
Description Christmas Wishes launched a Christmas toy appeal. For the children of hurstpierpoint, burgess hill and Hassocks areas in 2013
They had a Xmas party a week before Christmas where all the children would be invited to come and meet Santa, watch a show and have a party tea.
The mums also get to receive a small gift .
We also try and get local businesses to join in and come and do things like face painting, hair and nails etc.
We Also need helpers for at the party.
Toy wrappers as there are a lot of toys to wrap and of course a hall to hold the party in.
2013 was our first year and managed to help 20 families who would otherwise not have had many presents on Xmas day. Also a few mums got a Xmas dinner hamper so they could enjoy a festive dinner like the rest of us do.
Many thanks for all your help as this does involve a lot of people to make it work.
Please go to our webpage for more information on any help you can give us and also how to nominate a family to get help in 2017
We now have added a food pantry as families are needing food help during the year as many people are waiting up to a year for some benefits to come through.
Christmas 2017 fundraising is already underway.
Please help and support this very local organisation help local people.

Our aim is to help people for a short length of time while waiting for benefits to be sorted.
We help up to 10 weeks with food and support and a budget / benefit check to make sure they are receiving what they are entitled to
