  • Need

    Need

    Deprivation amongst low income families during the holiday period. Many families can't afford to buy presents or take their children to traditional seasonal activities such as trips to the Theatre for Pantomines or Winterwonderlands. They suffer from low self esteem and low levels of wellbeing due to not being able to partake of things the rest of us take for granted.

    Solution

    By enabling children to enjoy seasonal activities we will raise their self esteem and increase their wellbeing. Outings raise children's expectations and enhance their horizons.
