Christmas cards for the children of Future Stars

Receiving a personally addressed Christmas card is a very visible reminder that someone cares. For the children of Future Stars, this connection can mean a lot.
We aim to ensure that every child using the centre receives at least one card of their own. To achieve this, we need your help.

Last year, Chaffinch supporters sent a total of:

417 cards

Can you help us to do even better this year?

How to get involved

  • Choose a name from the list below.
  • Find a suitable Christmas card (or make one).
  • Cut the back off the card so you only have the picture (like a postcard). This reduces weight and consequently our shipping costs.
  • Write the child’s full name, any message, and your own name on the card.
  • Send your card to: Chaffinch, 3 Spurr Court, York, YO24 3ND to arrive by December 2nd.
