To provide care and activity packages for children and young people who come from disadvantaged backgrounds
Befriend a Child received £1,600 to provide care and activity packages for children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. They delivered care and activity packages to 77 children and young people.
The funds provided by Hardship Fund enabled us to offer care and activity packages at a time when children were in lockdown and were struggling with the isolation and lack of activities and stimulation. Since July we have started face to face outings and at the end of October 94% of volunteers were seeing their befriendee face to face. The funding from the Hardship Fund has allowed us to bridge an important gap when it was not possible to go on outings or have face to face contact. Thank you.
Any gift you can make, large or small, can have a huge impact on the lives of many. Businesses, associations and private individuals are being urged to support this appeal and donate whatever they can now.Donate
