“You have literally transformed our Christmas.......what was a Christmas of trying to sell things to make sure the kids were fed and doing the best we could is now a Christmas that I will never forget thanks to you...... What you do is truly remarkable. Your time and dedication goes beyond words. Have an amazing Christmas........Thank you so much.”
“I can’t tell you how much it means to me and my family. It is overwhelming. It has made [my husband] quite emotional to know that people do care about Veterans like him and we can’t say thank you enough!”
I was so relieved and so thankful, I cried like a baby when the hamper was delivered. Being able to have [my daughter] for Christmas and seeing the look on her face when she saw all the decorations and the food meant the absolute world to me.”
Every year, The Veterans Charity delivers special Christmas packages to Veterans and their families who otherwise would not be celebrating due to hardship.
Each package comprises of a huge 2-week family food shopping delivery including everything for a fabulous festive meal with treats, crackers, meat and all the trimmings, puddings, sauces, cheeses and nibbles.
In addition to the huge food shopping delivery, we also provide a fantastic gift hamper packed with festive treats, toys, crafts, puzzles, greetings cards, wrapping, tags and tape and also pre-paid gift cards to enable parents to choose something for a loved one from themselves.
This year has been very difficult for everyone but it has been especially challenging for those we have supported and sadly, many will still be struggling to make ends meet at Christmas.
We have supported dozens of Veterans who face the awful reality of having to tell their families that Santa won't be visiting their home this year - we want to make sure that this isn't a reality!
Be A Christmas Hero and make a huge difference to those who deserve better. Start fundraising today or ask your friends, family and colleagues to join you in donating. You can sponsor as many packages as you are able to and every hamper will include a special certificate telling the receiving family who kindly sponsored their Christmas.
