Our club has helped donate Christmas presents for people in the North East who truly need it. The gifts were collected for the charity organisation Changing Lives who run the initiative ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’.
The idea of the reverse calendar is that instead of getting little gifts people can give a little gift every day in the run-up to Christmas.
These gifts can include things like clothing and toiletries and they are then distributed directly to one of Changing Lives’ local projects, such as domestic violence refuges, woman’s hubs or recovery centres.
It was great to see the scale of the operation Changing Lives had organised. For the first Christmas ever Changing Lives were able to support all of their clients: No one of those in need of their support went without a Christmas present.
We are happy we were able to contribute to this successful project and want to thank everybody who helped us with the donations!
