A little hope and kindness shared this Christmas goes a long way to help vulnerable families
Every Christmas should be full of excitement, warmth and laughter. But for many children, this year will be very different as the Coronavirus has left a lot of families facing hardship. This Christmas children in our community need a secret Santa more than ever! Fusion Maidstone (a local charity) helps support vulnerable families with Christmas presents every year and were delighted to be able to offer more this year in partnership with the Life Café project thanks to funding from Counsellor Gary Cooke and the KCC and present donations from Morrisons to make this Christmas very special to the children in our community. “The thing about working together in the way we have is that we are able to achieve so much more and bring some joy and hope to many more homes than we could ever have done alone. It really does embody the spirit of Christmas that we certainly all need this year! So thank you to all who have made this possible.” Boden Dollie, Pastor of Celebration Church and the Life Cafe Project.
A huge thank you also goes out to Morrisons customers for their incredible kindness in taking part in the Christmas food bank donations during December, to enable Fusion to deliver a helping hand of basic food, toiletries and baby supplies to families in the Park Wood, Shepway and Tovil areas.
“I would like to share a big thank you to Morrisons and all their customers, Gary Cooke and the KCC, the Life Café project and all our volunteers who all helped bring excitement, warmth and happiness to our community this year”, said Tracey Elmore, Chief Officer Fusion.
