For Christmas 2019 we were able to provide a range of support for local residents thanks to the generosity of so many incredible supporters. This year we know through our work in the Hope Centre that there will be many more people in need in Partington and Carrington. This year has been one of the hardest that many of us can remember and so many local people have taken a huge financial hit through circumstances beyond their control. If you are worried about getting through this Christmas season, we’re here to help.
