Light the way

Thank you for supporting our Christingle celebrations

The Children’s Society’s Christingle celebrations  have been lighting up churches and schools for over 40 years – and 2014 saw supporters like you make the event brighter than ever.

Kalyani McCarthy, one of our programme workers, joined in with Christingle for the first time this year. ‘I really enjoyed taking part in my first Christingle,’ she says. ‘It was such a special event and a fantastic way of getting together to help improve the lives of children in poverty.

 ‘It is a fantastic way of getting together to help improve the lives of children in poverty’

‘For too many children and young people, Christmas is not a happy holiday– instead it’s a time of hardship, hunger and stress. It’s really wonderful that so many people take part in this Christian tradition and help raise vital funds so we can continue our work.’

Here at The Children’s Society we’d like to say thank you to everyone who took part in 2014. The money you raised through Christingle is already helping to change the lives of children in poverty.
