Every Christmas we work hard to raise funds to provide good quality presents for every child in the care of our local authority which are distributed at the wonderful Looked after Children Christmas party.
In 2019 we provided 549 presents and in addition over 100 presents for all those who had been adopted that year.
We also had the privilege of giving over 150 beautiful hampers with luxury items donated by our own Together for Children staff to our young people in Sunderland who have left care and would need Christmas goodies they would not otherwise have had.
Our team were able to raise the much needed money by Carol singing in our local supermarkets and many of you kindly donated to our cause.
Radio Newcastle also joined our singing on their programme and helped promote the appeal. Thanks to Sainsbury Silksworth Sunderland, Tesco Sunderland and Asda Seaham who got behind us and gave lots of time for our Hopespring team of singers.
