After a year of cuts, cuts and more cuts from the coalition government, hundreds of thousands of families have been forced to use food banks to feed their children. For many, putting food on the table is difficult enough on any normal day – Christmas will be even more difficult.
That’s why Unite, The Trussel Trust and the Daily Mirror have launched an appeal to help thousands of families have a proper Christmas meal this year.
If you are able to give anything to help, please try and do so. There are a number of easy ways you can help:
