As some of you may recall, last year we donated the “price” of our 2012 Advent Calendar competition to Crisis at Christmas. Instead of offering 24 prizes to compers we opted to donate the prize fund in the form of Christmas Meals for people who really need it. Although our advent competition has made a return for 2013, we’ve not forgotten the charity or our pledge to repeat the donation.
Therefore we’re pleased to announce that this year Loquax has donated the cost of 24 Meals (£524.16) to this worthy cause.
The below is an extract from an email received, after making the donation, that explains the charity’s work:
“During Crisis at Christmas, our guests receive so much more than a hot meal and good company, they get the best support, housing and job advice, services and entertainment we can find, plus they get to find out about Crisis year-round services, bringing hope for a better year ahead. When the nine centres close, most will be inspired to see the New Year in a positive way, sure that there are people like you and Crisis to help them transform their lives.”
If you want to find out more, or you would like to donate yourself, then head to Crisis At Christmas.
