Embrace Child Victims of Crime CVoC are seeking volunteers to get involved with our seasonal fund-raising appeal, Dear Santa 2019 at our HQ in Peterborough.
Join us for the #BIGWRAP on Thursday 28 November from 10.30 – 12.30 to help gift wrap long-for Christmas presents for children that have been affected by serious crime.
National children’s charity Embrace CVoC delivers trauma-management support and other help services to young people affected by serious crime in the UK, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
‘Dear Santa’ is our seasonal fund-raising initiative designed to buy gifts for such children from low income families to help brighten their Christmas and to extend Embrace’s services.
The children, nominated by a police officer/safeguarding workers, choose their own gift (worth up to £50) which donors then buy directly from a unique Amazon wish-list.
To protect the identity of individual’s nominated, purchased gifts must be delivered to our central holding location to allow for wrapping and onwards delivery by Embrace staff and volunteers.
– Volunteers to be available to help Embrace staff gift wrap presents on selected dates and times.
What Embrace can offer
– Single point of contact to manage logistics, queries and issues.
