There’s no denying that this year has been difficult for everyone, but in particular, for those in unsuitable and unstable housing conditions. The sad truth is, some families won’t have anything to open on Christmas morning and that’s why the Sheffield Vulcans are skipping our annual Christmas festivities in favour of supporting Shelter’s Virtual Santa Campaign.
This year the Vulcans will become Virtual Santas and instead of purchasing our usual Secret Santa gifts for one another, we are taking that money and purchasing gift cards for families who use Shelter’s services in order to spread some festive cheer. We love this incentive and that’s why we’d like to encourage our loyal supporters to do the same (if they can).
With your help we can support Shelter to provide local Sheffield-based families facing homelessness or bad housing with a brighter Christmas. So, if you would like to join us in supporting Shelter, please purchae a digital voucher from one of the following:
- Any major UK supermarket e.g. Sainsbury’s Tesco, Aldi etc.
- The Early Learning Centre
- Amazon Smiles
Once you have made your purchase please email your voucher to firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you include the following information in your email:
- Your location
- Your email address
- Your message
- Details of who has encouraged you to give a voucher (Sheffield Vulcans RUFC)
- Your connection to Shelter (If Any)
After the Sheffield Shelter HUB have received your voucher, they will distribute them based on their knowledge of service users. The vouchers will be sent out to appropriate people who will then purchase their own gifts for Christmas day.
