Somebody Cares, our local charity, is keen to support families in Aberdeen who are in real trouble and in need of support at this festive season. For the last 4 years they have run a very successful programme where they worked with city schools who helped them identify families in such circumstances.
Each family was given food to get them through the Christmas period and also presents for each child. In total, they gave out over 2500 food bags and presents to all the children. The reality was that they were able to ensure that many needy families who might not have had Christmas at all were able to enjoy the food and presents that most of us are accustomed to having.
We have been asked to give a letter to the children of these families so that they can help make Christmas happen for them. Please read this letter if you or someone you know would benefit from this support.
