Home-Start Butser

Big Give Christmas

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to Home-Start Butser's first Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of so many supporters, and you have given us hope and belief that we can continue to help those families who rely on us at a critical time in their lives.

Not only did you help us reach our target of £12,000, you carried on giving and we ended the week with £14,194, all of which will go towards supporting more families.

Because of you we can offer a brighter future for local families experiencing a crisis.

With huge thanks for all your support.
