Help us to make Christmas special
Christmas at Future Stars
Since Chaffinch’s foundation, ensuring the children can celebrate Christmas has been very important. Daily life in the slum can be very difficult. A Christmas party allows the children to forget the challenges for a day and just have some fun.
One More Christmas Card
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.
We had a great response and over 200 cards have been written.
🌟 Stars for Future Stars 🌟
We have received 99 knitted and crocheted stars for our Future Stars. They will be dispatched to Kenya, where they are sure to be excitedly received by the children.* Huge thanks to all who got involved.
Christmas Dinner at Future Stars
For most of the children who attend the centre, meat is rarely (if ever) on the menu. So, on Christmas Day, Chaffinch provides chicken and beef for a special Christmas Dinner. Add vegetables, chapati, soda, ugali, and plenty of delicious gravy and you’ve got yourself a celebration.
Of course, none of this comes without a cost:
Whether you’d like to contribute toward the shipping costs for Christmas cards and soft toy stars, or make a donation for Christmas Dinner, every penny we raise will help to ensure the children of Future Stars can celebrate the day.
