John Lewis & Partners #GiveALittleLove campaign in support of Home-Start & FareShare
CAPTURING THE SPIRIT OF GENEROSITY IN OUR COMMUNITIES: HOME-START CRAWLEY HORSHAM AND MID SUSSEX ARE PART OF £5m NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP WITH JOHN LEWIS, WAITROSE AND FARESHARE TO SUPPORT UK’S STRUGGLING FAMILIES.
A new partnership has launched between Home-Start, FareShare, John Lewis and Waitrose aims to create an outpouring of kindness to help Britain’s struggling families this Christmas.
This festive season is sure to be one like no other. Parenthood is challenging enough in normal times but the current pandemic has added additional layers of anxiety, uncertainty and isolation.
Home-Start Crawley Horsham and Mid Sussex have been there for families when they’ve needed support most. As part of a network of 180 Home-Starts across the country we at Home-Start CHAMS have moved essential support services on-line to stay connected with families through our team of 54 volunteers– staying connected with families, providing emotional and practical support, and linking families into other community services such as their local foodbanks. We have seen social distancing and isolation placing enormous strain on families.
This exciting new campaign with the John Lewis Partnership aims to raise £5m for the work of Home-Start and FareShare through a nationwide effort to encourage communities and customers to embrace the Christmas spirit and give what they can.
