Businesses in Staffordshire are being asked to help give hundreds of local families a festive boost by supporting a charity’s work to make and deliver 500 Christmas hampers.
Award-winning YMCA North Staffordshire, which received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2021 for its work in Promoting Opportunities, has launched its annual campaign to provide a range of winter essentials like blankets and throws and a few treats like chocolates and colouring books to those people who need it most.
Every pound raised by the funding campaign will be match-funded and we’re asking Daily Focus readers to give what they can to support such a worthy cause, which has helped thousands of families over the years.

YMCA NS Executive Assistant Tracey Pointon said: “This year many people won’t be able to afford a Christmas, but we won’t allow this to happen, we wish to make Christmas 2023 as hopeful and joy-filled as possible for as many people as possible.
“We’ll be grateful for any support and every donation and we promise to put everything we can raise to good use.”
