Christmas Appeal 2020
Go BIG or go CHRISTMAS!
Christmas is officially our favourite time of the year! What's not to love about copious amounts of mince pies, warm cosy nights and time spent with loved ones? We know this year might be a little bit different but we still have plenty for you to get involved with whilst supporting children living with disabilities in our region.
Whilst many children are filling their Christmas lists with LOL Dolls and hover boards, many of our children are simply hoping for the gift of a safe night sleep in a specialist bed or even riding a specially adapted trike for the first time.
Can you, your organisation or school support us this year by getting involved in any of our Christmas activities?
We all need a little extra festive cheer this year and nothing cheers us up like a Christmas Jumper! Whether you're at work, home or school, join us on Friday 11th December for our annual Christmas Jumper Day. This year anything goes so grab your festive jumper, PJ's, hat and socks and remember to tag us in your pics on Facebook (@sunshinefund), Twitter (@sunshine_fund) or Instagram (@sunshine_fund).
Download our CJD poster to send round friends and colleagues to get them involved too!
We have a secret to share, we know Santa and he LOVES receiving mail! You can order a personalised letter all the way from the North Pole* for your little (Or big!) ones and help support our life changing work at the same time! Our letters will include information about your little folk that only Santa will know, and come on beautifully packaged complete with Santa's Official Wax stamp. At only £5 its a gift you will want to keep forever. Final order date for letters is Monday 14th December.
*Actually made in Santa's Newcastle Office, because lets face it, it's cold enough!
Please consider making a general donation to us. We launched our Christmas Appeal to support children from our November Equipment round and we have approximately £50,000 worth of equipment on this waiting list. This year we are hoping to fund equipment such as sensory dens, iPads, wheelchairs, trikes, specialist beds and a floor home lift, but we can only do this with your help! A donation from you can have a real impact, help us help them this Christmas.
