Christmas Appeal

We have been running an annual Christmas appeal since 2017, allowing us to buy new books as Christmas gifts each year for children and young people affected by the Criminal Justice System.

In 2017, we were able to buy books for dads in Whitemoor to give their children as Christmas gifts at their Christmas family visit day. In 2018, we again bought books for dads in Whitemoor, and also for mothers in Foston Hall and Styal (with generous support from the Siobhan Dowd Trust), for them to give their children as Christmas gifts.

This year, we are delighted to have made arrangements with Polmont Young Offenders Institution in Scotland to provide new books as Xmas presents for over 100 young people there. This is alongside again providing books for dads in Whitemoor to give their children, and also to dads in Oakwood. We would like to thank Siobhan Dowd Trust for their ongoing generous support, as well as all those who have already donated to this year's appeal.

If you are able to donate to this year's Christmas Appeal, it will be hugely appreciated. As we are a tiny volunteer-run charity, all donations will go direct to buying new books specifically for this Christmas project.
