Throughout November and December 2017 we ran our Christmas Shoebox appeal alongside our Homed society, encouraging donations of a small box of essential items or gifts that would mean a great deal to those in need in Southampton.

Be Santa for the homeless this year by sending a Christmas shoebox to those in need through our Christmas Shoebox Appeal.
This Christmas we are working in partnership with Homed, one of our societies which supports homeless people living in Southampton, and Two Saints, a Southampton-based charity which supports the homeless and vulnerable. In this season of goodwill and gift-giving, we are giving back to the local community by preparing small boxes of essentials and gifts which would mean a great deal to those in need.
