We are very grateful to Waitrose Store Oxford Road who, for the last five years have kindly helped launch our Christmas appeal at their store and to collect on site. Thanks also go to Tesco in Oxford Road who allowed us to collect on site. This enabled us to provide food vouchers to members of our local community and with your help we are able to do even more those in need in the Reading area. Many thanks for your generosity. Together we raised more than 30,000 from the last five Christmas appeals.


Thanks to YOU every penny will make a difference!

every penny counts Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year
