A little extra for the children

Following the article in The Guardian last week about The Biscuit Fund, we received an extra and completely unexpected donation with the express wish that it be used to make sure that families we work with had a little extra at Christmas.  For most families it is an expensive time of the year, but for some they are struggling to stay afloat financially.  They can’t entertain the idea of buying any extra food or even presents for the children.  For a child used to their parents not being able to give them any presents at all, just a small gift can mean the world to them, so we were happy to help.  We scoured through our recent cases and found 14 families with children, and to each family we sent an extra £50 to use to make their Christmas Day that little bit more special.  A big thank you to our special donor for making the Christmas of these families that bit more special.
