The start of an amazing journey

Celebrate the start of an amazing journey

Celebrate the christening of a precious child with a special gift to mark the occasion.

Our range of gifts offers you the opportunity both to give a christening gift to the newly baptised child and to make a difference to the lives of some of our country’s most disadvantaged children.

Every gift makes a difference

Whichever christening gift you buy, your donation will help us to continue supporting children as they take their first steps from childhood to adulthood.

The money raised from each gift will go directly towards supporting our work with and for children and families facing poverty and neglect on a daily basis.

Simply choose a gift from the selection below to find out more.
