Christmas is nearly here again!
We have had our final planning meeting for Christmas already. You may not be aware, but December and January are the peak times for referrals. This is probably due to women not wanting to break the family up for Christmas but decide on a fresh start for January.
Friends of North Dorset Women’s Refuge try and make Christmas a special as possible for the families.
- Presents for the children
- Pamper Hampers for the women
- Christmas food hampers stocked with long life goods for each flat
- A christmas carol singing session
- A party for residents
- Pantomime tickets
If anyone is looking to donate items for Christmas we would be really grateful to receive them.
The cut off for delivery is 16th December 2013. Even if you miss this, we will always put things in our present cupboard as we like to give the women and chidren gifts on their birthdays.
I am based in Shaftesbury so can collect or be a drop off point for donations.
Many thanks and Merry Christmas
