Give the gift of Christmas
As the cost of living crisis continues to rip through our society and inflation continues to increase, the real-term cost of goods has risen considerably. This is especially true for essential items, such as household goods and food.
For Romany, Irish Traveller or nomadic people who travel, gas bottles are vital in ensuring you can warm your home or cook your food, and yet the cost of gas bottles currently stands at around £150 just for a week's worth.
With the festive period around the corner, there will be families and individuals with little to no respite from the burden of trying to stay safe, secure and healthy.
At Friends, Families and Travellers, we have sought to alleviate the pressures of everyday life for many of Sussex's Romany and Traveller people, through our brilliant Outreach and Casework teams. This is where you come in!
To be able to spread some holiday cheer throughout this difficult period, we need your support. We have created a bespoke series of 'gifts' that you can give to Romany or Traveller families in Sussex, whether it's a toy for a young child to open on Christmas or a gas bottle to ensure a family can stay warm through the colder days.
Hover over and click the boxes below to see how you can help out this Christmas.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to overwhelming support and our Outreach Team reaching maximum capacity, we will now be distributing Food and Toy vouchers instead of the physical items.
