Local causes we support
Since our first Christmas Day lunch we have become associated with other local causes that we help to support.
Local Women’s Refuge
We became aware that a local refuge didn’t get any additional funding and was in need of practical items such as a new kitchen equipment, new bedding, new towels, etc. So we set up an Amazon wish list a few months before Christmas and asked the local community to purchase off the wish list so the Refuge got what they needed and not what people thought they need.
Help the Homeless Chorley
Help the Homeless Chorley have been helping local people for over 20 years. Pauline’s Angels put items they need around Christmas time on our Amazon wish list such as sleeping bags, hand warmers, warm socks and hats. We also often donate food and toiletries to them to distribute.
The Shaun Haggart Foundation
This Foundation is based in Blackburn and is similar to Pauline’s Angels as they set it up in memory of their family member, Shaun. This wonderful Foundation collect secondhand clothes, baby items, toys, books, food, etc. for struggling families and distribute them throughout the town. If we receive items we can’t place anywhere we send it over to them and they often donate raffle prizes to us for any fundraisers we may have.
Home Start Central Lancashire
Home Start is a national charity that helps families with children aged 0 to 11 years. We often collect Easter eggs or toys at Christmas time for the Home Start staff and volunteers to hand out to struggling families.
