Sponsor a Child 2021
We are looking for people to sponsor a child for going back to school in August.
Most children return to school with a brand-new uniform, a jacket, PE kit and footwear but sadly this just isn’t the case for all children.
Can you help “Sponsor A Child” and together we can support a local child from a family experiencing financial hardship. Together we can make a difference in our local community.
Last year our campaign was affected by the pandemic and we had to run the campaign through an online giving platform.
In the previous year, 2019, we were blown away by the generosity and kindness of the sponsor packs we received. 389 people provided a uniform pack – which was truly overwhelming.
This year the coronavirus has hit families hard and we expect the number of children needing our help to be greater than last year. We are therefore appealing for more sponsors.
As the restrictions are lifting we are looking to run the Sponsor a Child campaign as we did pre-covid e.g. once you register to become a sponsor we will contact you with a list of requirements for the child then its over to you to buy the items.
This is our main fundraiser of the year and we are greatly relying on your support to help us cope with the increased demand for our service. Please help if you can. We greatly appreciate any donation; every little bit of help and support is appreciated.
All donations can be made via VirginMoneyGiving with the button below
Please remember to tick the gift aid box if you are a UK tax payer, as we can claim 25% on top of your donation.
We will then purchase the items for you and ensure a local child in West Lothian is donated a uniform pack paid for by you.
Here is a rough guide to help you decide how much to donate:
• £5 will supply PE shorts and t-shirt
• £10 for a school bag
• £15 for a pair of shoes
• £25 for a jacket,
• £80 to supply a full uniform pack to a primary age child
• £115 for a secondary age child
