Give somebody a better view of the world this Christmas by taking part in our Christmas Hamper Appeal…
Ask your colleagues to donate an item to make up the hamper, then raffle the hamper at your office party or perhaps on the last of work before Christmas and help us meet our target of £5,000 needed to fund our opticians service at Crisis for Christmas.
Every year, in addition to the regular optician’s clinics we operate for homeless people we partner with Crisis at Christmas and help over 300 homeless guests receive a full sight- test, spectacles where needed and advice on eye care. Although our teams are staffed by volunteers and we receive donations in kind, in the months leading up to and following Crisis at Christmas, we spend around £5,000 organising and equipping the service.
If you would like to organise a Christmas Hamper Raffle please contact Community & Challenges Fundraiser Alison Gordon by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note raffle tickets need to be sold on the day of the draw to comply with fundraising regulations, unless you apply for a licence.
