Family Support

We are now urgently in need of donations of groceries, toiletries, nappies and baby wipes. We may give gift cards for the purchase of fresh food to some of the families referred to us whom we regularly support. We would be grateful for £25 gift cards for Morrisons, Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda.

Baby, Children’s and Household Project

We can now accept donations of washable bedding items i.e. duvet covers, pillow cases, family towels, flat sheets, and also cot bedding. We will not be taking baby items and children’s clothes for several months as we have plentiful supplies and no more storage space.

Furniture Project

Our stores are generally well-stocked but if you have furniture you would like to donate, please check to see if we are running short of essentials like beds, sofas and chests of drawers. It maybe that we have a family making a more unusual request and you have just the item they need.

Children’s Activities

In the weeks leading up to Christmas we prepared gifts for around 80 children and teenagers. These were delivered with Christmas Hampers so that families can celebrate together. Easter eggs were donated so that we could add them to the bags of groceries being delivered in April. In August we are planning a coach outing for parents and younger children to an urban farm.

20 youngsters will be going to Falcon Camps in August. We have set up a Camps Appeal to raise funds as it costs approximately £150 to send each youngster. Please consider supporting this venture. You can do this in a variety of ways – by sending a cheque payable to Christian CARE Association to the Christian CARE Office, by making a payment directly into the charity bank account [please contact the Treasurer for information] or by going to the donation button on the Home Page of the website.
