This year, instead of sending Christmas cards out to all my clients like I usually do, I have decided to donate the money that I would have spent on cards and postage to charity.
I have chosen the charity Caring at Christmas who help homeless people at Christmas and throughout the year. They run a Christmas shelter every year in Bristol and they also provide homeless 16 to 24 years olds with temporary accommodation in the homes of volunteer hosts.
During this recent spell of cold weather, I have not been able to shake the feelings I've had when thinking about all the homesless people out on the streets at night trying to survive these cold temperatures. It must be horrible for them. I moan enough just being out in it for 5 minutes! Their only hope is through projects like this and others like it to get them through it.
More information about the charity can be found on their website.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Best wishes, Sarah
