URBAN OUTREACH (BOLTON)


Urban Outreach believes that everyone should experience a little joy at Christmas but knows for many it can be a sad time. Loneliness, family breakdown, bereavement, or having just too little money to celebrate the occasion are some of the reasons. This project will provide hampers to many who are struggling. The hampers contain everything that an individual or family needs to put on a traditional Christmas spread – right down to mince pies and Christmas crackers! Due to Covid 19 reducing many families’ income this year the appeal aims to provide 2000 hampers as the need for the hampers has increased.
Bolton Council staff are fundraising to buy produce for the hampers inspired by Anne Gorton, a much-loved colleague who sadly passed away in December 2019. Anne left a legacy of supporting this annual appeal. Many of the families that are supported by this project are vulnerable children and families that colleagues across the council work with. Please help to support this appeal and our staff fundraising efforts by purchasing a balloon in the Eco Balloon Race.

Our fundraising target is: £1500

Gross monies raised so far: £201

Supporters so far: 22
