Christmas Appeal update

We are delighted that this year’s Christmas Appeal has raised £3,400…and counting!

Your generosity helped us to give families from Martin House Children’s and Young People’s Hospice an unforgettable Christmas experience last weekend in the final day of this year's Let's Dance project.

Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, a special relaxed performance of The Nutcracker and the opportunity to meet the dancers afterwards.

Families taking part picked out some of their favourite photos from the project.

“Sometimes it’s easy to forget to have fun, we’re so busy being mum, dad, or sister etc.”

“We were made to feel comfortable and a lot of the stress was taken away. There’s often a lot of pressure for a day out to be really great… sometimes we want to do an activity together but the planning and the hassle of it means we don’t but this project takes all of that away”

If you would like to support our future work with Martin House, there is still time to donate via our Appeal page or by Texting NBMM18 £5 to 70070* to give £5.

Alternatively, if you would like to set up a regular gift, please contact Rebecca Crowther on, or call 0113 220 8000

Thank you!!
