TouchPoint is delighted to announce the launch of the TouchPoint Kids Christmas Gifts Appeal 2023!

We talk to parents and carers who don’t know how they are going to afford Christmas this year.

We are launching this appeal to raise funds to distribute gift vouchers to local families who are really feeling the pinch. Our Christmas Appeal last year supported over 200 local children, but this year it has become clear to us that we must be more ambitious and reach more families in such challenging times.

We are working closely with local organisations such as Uttlesford Foodbank, Mind in West Essex, schools and local support agencies to help us make sure this support reaches the families that most need it.

Through consultation with our partners, we estimate that there are more than 600 children in our area for whom this initiative would make a huge difference. For parents it will help ease some of the stress and anxiety that can be associated with Christmas when you are struggling to pay your bills.

We have set an ambitious fundraising target of £15,000.

The more money we raise, the more children we can support. If we exceed our target, we will be able to reach further afield, as far as the money we raise allows us to go!

We want to distribute £25 worth of vouchers to every child that is in need in our area this Christmas. The TouchPoint Kids Christmas Gifts Appeal encourages the local community to unite and make a difference. Whether through donations, volunteering, or spreading the word, everyone can play a part. TouchPoint is collaborating with local businesses, schools, and organisations to expand the reach and impact of the Kids Christmas Gifts Appeal.
