Donate this Christmas

Caring at Christmas relies on donations from our generous supporters and amazing volunteers, without whom we couldn’t deliver the support we do.

New food partnerships

Each year we try and reduce the environmental impact of the project, so we are thrilled to be teaming up with food charity Fareshare this year to source as much of our food as possible from surplus food stocks.

Thanks to Josh Eggleton and some of Bristol’s best chefs, we’ll be turning surplus food from Fareshare, along with fresh produce donated by Community Farm, into top quality delicious meals to feed hundreds of people every day.

This means we require less food donations than usual. We will still, however, be collecting non-perishable items on behalf of other organisations that provide food to people experiencing homelessness throughout the year.

Financial support

We need your support! It costs us £60,000 each year to deliver Caring at Christmas. We work hard to improve and develop the project to provide the best possible service to our guests, whilst also keeping our costs down, and we think that’s pretty
amazing value for what we deliver.

We don’t receive any statutory funding for this work, so we are reliant on donations from the incredibly generous community in Bristol and beyond.

A donation of £21 pays for someone to access Caring at Christmas, where they will have access to:

  • a warm bed each night
  • regular hot meals
  • shower and fresh clothes
  • a warm welcome and good company
  • wellbeing, health and social activities
  • emotional, mental health and medical support

Together let’s create a city empowered to solve homelessness.
