Tesco – Every Penny and All That!!

Thank you to everyone who voted for us in the latest Tesco Grant Scheme (Blue Tokens) We received the most tokens, so are going to get a donation of £1,500.00!!!! This is an amazing amount of money for us, and will help us continue to provide much needed food shops for local families in poverty


Wave 105 – Support from their Supporters

We are continually grateful to Wave 105 Cash for Kids for supporting us through their grants. They have just donated a further £1850.00 from their current “Cost of Living” Grant, to enable us to provide more families in poverty with weekly food shops.
Thank you so much to Wave 105 and their wonderful listeners. Our little charity wouldn’t survive without financial support like this.download

Cheeky Little Donation!

Thank you so much to Cheeky Rascals for donating 5 wall mounted nursery heaters and 5 free standing nursery heaters. They emailed us the following:-
“I was reading an article and Press release about local people being forced to decide between heating and eating.
As a team this really saddened us and we want to help in any small way we can.
We have a product that we would love to donate to your charity for you to use as you wish. See below. With heating bills soaring, families using the Reer Heaters to heat one part of their home might be a better idea than heating a whole house for example.”
These will be given to families who are referred to us for this support.
Thank you!!!

Mission Christmas Makes Christmas Happen

With the continued support of Wave 105 Mission Christmas and other local Companies and individuals, we fulfilled all Christmas gift referrals received. These were purely for children who would otherwise go without a gift. Reasons varied from children living in poverty, or who have been subject to neglect, abuse, or been through domestic violence.
Some of the feedback we received – “I just wanted to say a big thank you, I gave out all the Christmas presents last week to the vulnerable families, they were all so grateful and wanted me to pass on their appreciation, so thank you, it really does make a huge difference to these families “
“I am wondering if you can help with any gifts for a toddler and his baby sister. The family have recently been evicted (through no fault of their own) and their benefits have been delayed due to an administrative error. They are currently living in a B&B”
“I know this is late notice before Christmas but this family has only just been allocated to me and they are really struggling financially and have written off Christmas this year. I was hoping we could maybe give them something so they could still have a Christmas meal and gifts”
Without all this support, we wouldn’t be able to provide for struggling families in our local area – so THANK YOU!!!

Wave 105 Mission Christmas – Local People Helping Local People

A massive thank you to Wave 105 for the Christmas gifts again this year. This makes so much difference to local children – some of the reasons for referrals – children removed from their abusive parent (and parent has destroyed everything of theirs); children who are living in temporary accommodation (B&B) and only have a few personal items (their favourite toy); children whose parent has escaped domestic violence and they have had to move area to escape the situation (starting again with just a bag of clothes etc). The gifts they receive have a massive positive impact, and without local people and organisations such as Wave 105, and all the Companies and individuals who have donated – this wouldn’t be possible.
A further thank you to Prime Demolition who stepped in for the second year to collect all the gifts from Mission Christmas Headquarters in Hedge End on our behalf. You are all stars!!
