This Christmas, Crisis are running a campaign on Virgin Money Giving which will allow them to welcome around 4,300 homeless people to be guests at “Crisis at Christmas” across centres in London, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Coventry. There, the guests will receive three nutritious meals, a new set of clothes, housing and job advice plus access to year-round services. With this campaign, Crisis hopes to help people leave homelessness behind for good.
Over the past six years, many Christmas volunteers have not only given up their time but also raised over half a million pounds in sponsorship for Crisis nationally, making a huge additional impact with over 600 volunteers taking part last Christmas to raise more than £174,000.
This Christmas, Crisis are asking you to become a sponsored volunteer. Just £22.29 is enough to provide a place for a homeless person at Crisis at Christmas and your sponsorship will help Crisis continue to deliver valuable services for homeless people all year round. Any and all sponsorship raised will make a real difference.
To find out more about volunteering, visit the ‘Crisis at Christmas’ website.
Once you’ve registered, head to the ‘Crisis at Christmas’ Virgin Money Giving Campaign page, click ‘Start Fundraising‘, join the ‘Crisis at Christmas’ event for your area, set up your fundraising page and it around to all your friends and family.
Alternatively, you can make a donation to the campaign and pay for a homeless person to have a warm Christmas.
