Supporting vulnerable children at Christmas
At the end of 2020, the LSHP Foundation provided much needed financial support for over 90 vulnerable children as part of the Picton Children’s Centre Christmas Campaign.
The Children’s Centre, based at the Picton Neighbourhood Health Centre, identified over 90 children in desperate need over the Christmas period due to the severe financial pressures on their families, with the children ranging in ages from new-born to 15 years. With usual fundraising activities curtailed because of the coronavirus, the funding from the LSHP foundation was used by the Children’s Centre to help distribute toys, pyjama’s, toiletries, selection boxes, hats and gloves and food shopping vouchers to the families in need.
Children’s Centre Area Manager, Liz Parsons commented:
“The help and support that LSHP provided for us at the beginning of the Covid crisis made such a difference and brought so much relief, this generous donation for the Christmas Campaign will be a huge help and go towards some of our most vulnerable families.”
