Save the Family (STF) provide accommodation and support to local homeless and troubled families with an emphasis on safeguarding children. As the Children have often experienced different traumas on top of the trauma of becoming homeless, STF try their upmost to make Christmas extra special in the hope it will create an enduring happy memory. This year, with the rules around social distancing, they are unable to have their usual children’s party, where the kids see Santa and receive a gift.
This year, the staff and volunteers are creating a Winter Wonderland in the Sensory Garden, so the Children may still have their party and see Santa at a safe distance. This allocation will allow Save the Family to buy some inflatable or light up decorations to create something special that can be used every year.
