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.

The deadline for referring families and individuals to the Hamper Scamper appeal was Friday 9th November. Unfortunately we are unable to accept any late referrals. If you are part of an organisation that is working with anybody who fits this description, please contact the events team to ensure you are informed when the 2019 referral window is open.
