“Looked after” Children’s Christmas appeal and Foodbank Appeal

Standard

Hi everyone,

As you know for the last 4/ 5 years? Coventry City Council staff have collected at Christmas for both the Foodbank, and for Christmas presents for our “looked after children”.

Every year we’ve been overwhelmed with the sheer volume and generosity of all you kind souls out there. See last years haul in the pic above.

This year things are obviously very different, even father Christmas is socially distancing, and has gone ”Virtual” in the grottos; https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-54816579

So instead of buying gifts for our looked after children and care leavers, we can now donate to the “Just Giving Page” that has been set up here:

Its super easy to use, literally takes seconds, and any donation great or small would be hugely appreciated.

They’re aiming to raise £3k by the deadline of 30th November

You can follow them on social media too – @VoicesOfCareCov and @CovVoices

Secondly as ever the Foodbanks are always looking for donations and this time of year is always the hardest financially. You can still donate to supermarket collection points (a complete list is on this website) and you can also donate cash really easily too.
