Christmas Gifts

Each year at Christmas we collect presents to be given to people living in our local hostels – Leeway, YMCA MyPlace and Archway.

  • Leeway, where mothers and children escaping domestic abuse have a temporary refuge and loving support, with the longer-term objective of moving them into their own accommodation
  • YMCA MyPlace, with around 20 young women and 20 young men aged between 16-25 years of age in residence. They have low to medium need/risk, with low tolerance for alcohol and substance misuse
  • Archway, which cares for single homeless or inadequately housed young women aged 16-24 with support needs.

Popular gifts include clothing such as t-shirts, knitwear, tights, socks, gloves, scarves, new toiletries for both adults and children, new gift sets, arts and craft sets and sticker books, brand new toys, games and board games (no toy guns or knives, ages 0-16) sweets and chocolates. If you would like to remember the children (under 11 years of age) please donate new children’s clothes, sweets and smaller toys.

Please do NOT wrap your presents, as Leeway cannot accept wrapped them.

Gifts may be left in the boxes at Christ Church on the Sundays of 29 November and 4 December 

For further details please contact Vivien Humber (507855)
