£16,000 raised to make Christmas brighter for Look Ahead customers

Published: 12th January 2023
Look Ahead would like to thank everyone who donated so generously to our 2022 Secret Santa campaign. Every donation helped bring joy to the individuals we support.

Look Ahead’s annual Secret Santa campaign raises money towards providing a brighter, better Christmas for the children, families and adults in our services. Our recent 2022 campaign was particularly important for those who we support.

Rising inflation, soaring fuel costs and the increasing costs of food are having an impact on many of us. These nationwide pressures had a huge impact on our customers who have a range of complex needs. Many are facing homelessness, have just left care, have mental health needs or are fleeing domestic abuse. For some, they do not have family or loved ones to lend a hand, often we are their only support.

Thank you, it has been years since I have received anything on Christmas

We are delighted to confirm that we surpassed our fundraising target and raised over £16,000. Every pound received was shared across our sites in London and the South East, providing a brighter, better Christmas for the children, families and adults in our services.

On top of the financial donations from individuals and corporate partners, we received donations of food, presents, hampers and essential items. We also had 40 team members from medical device company Medtronic volunteer at one of our learning disabilities services, wrapping Christmas gifts and helping with decorations.

Your generosity has made a huge difference. Thank you.
