Barnardo's Kidsmas Fundraising

Christmas is all about children. For them, it's a truly magical time. That's why we're calling it Kidsmas.

Christmas can be a magical time for children. Sadly, while many of us can’t wait for festive fun with our family, thousands of children across the UK are struggling. Abuse, mental health issues or their family circumstances mean that for them, Christmas is just another difficult day. But there is a way you can help.

By raising money for Barnardo’s this Kidsmas, you can make a life-changing difference to a vulnerable child – giving them the expert support, kindness and care they need to have a happier Christmas, and a brighter future.

While many of us can’t wait for Christmas and spending time with family, for thousands of children across the UK it’s another difficult day coping with abuse, mental health issues and family circumstances We’re asking you to join us and come together with your families, friends and communities to raise vital funds and help ensure vulnerable children can look forward to a brighter future and a merry Kidsmas.

10 year old Sophie* was caring for her mum and baby brother - taking on responsibilities far beyond her years, leaving her overwhelmed. She fell behind at school and missed out on having fun with her friends. Thankfully, Barnardo’s was able to step in - giving Sophie the chance to talk about her feelings, find ways of coping and simply have fun, just like every child should.

*Sophie's story is true but her name has been changed and a model used to protect her identity.

Why am I fundraising this KIDSMAS

I believe in the magic of Kidsmas.

Christmas is a time that is close to my heart. Sadly, whilst most of us look forward to this time of year, many vulnerable children across the UK are struggling. Issues such as exploitation, abuse, bullying and mental health concerns are depriving children of the chance to enjoy this special time of year – and of the future they deserve.

I want to make a difference to children and young people and that is why I am supporting Kidsmas with Barnardo’s. I want to help children across the UK and give them a Christmas and a future to look forward to.

I would really love it if you could join in the festive fun and help me build my Kidsmas Snowman. For every donation that you give, you can throw a snowball. The more snowballs I receive, the more donations to help make sure vulnerable children happy, safe and cared for.

Let’s build a Snowman for Kidsmas!
