Faith in Families are at the heart of Swansea communities, inspiring children and families to believe and succeed in their lives. There is still an incredible disparity in our city and we believe in 2018 no one should be hungry especially children,especially at Christmas.
A study undertaken in our centres showed that 62% of the participants had a family member in work challenging the image of people using our services. However, the amount of money that they have available for food is startling.
On December 25th most of us will celebrate with a slap-up Christmas meal: turkey, roast potatoes and all the trimmings and Christmas pudding. One estimate of the cost of a Christmas meal for four today is £84.27*.
How about inviting Faith in Families to your Christmas meal this year? It would cost you £21.07 – assuming your extra guest eats as much as everyone else eats. The suggestion is that you give £21.07 this Advent to Faith in Families – or more if you are going to drink champagne.
If everyone gave £21.07 to Faith in Families this Christmas it would enable us to continue supporting children and families throughout the following year, tackling food poverty in the school holidays, there is no place for hunger in our city, help us make a difference this Christmas.
