Christmas is always seen as a special time of year, but this is not the case for everybody. The expense and expectation can place a real strain on any family, but particularly those living in poverty, or facing homelessness or family breakdown. There are also many lonely and vulnerable young people and adults who simply have nobody to be with at this time of year.

Hamper Scamper is CCP’s Christmas Giving appeal, designed to spread a little cheer to some of the most disadvantaged children, young people, families and vulnerable adults at Christmas.

Hamper Scamper relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations within our community in order to provide this service. Take a look at who was involved in 2018 and see our achievements:
