Christmas at Coram

This Christmas there are 2.2m children and young people who live in vulnerable families. Spread love and opportunity this festive season by helping those who need it most. 

Join us this Christmas to help give children and young people the love and opportunity they need to thrive in life. This year there are plenty of ways you can fundraise at work, in a group, at school or with your family and friends.

Christmas Jumpers

Why not brighten up your work video calls with some festive fun? It doesn’t matter where you are this year, you can still dig out your most festive jumper and support Coram with a Christmas Jumper day. Mix it up with Christmas hats, earrings, or get your pets involved! (Who doesn't like to see a dog in a santa hat?)

Ask everyone taking part to make a minimum donation of £2 to Coram, just like you would in the office, and rest assured your Christmas fundraising will help the children that need it most. 

Don’t forget to share your photos on social media and tag us in them, and get in touch, we would love to hear what you have planned!

Secret Santa

Not in the office this year? In lieu of your traditional Secret Santa present exchange this year, why not become a Secret Santa yourself?

This Christmas vulnerable children in the UK need our help more than ever. Every child’s Christmas should be full of excitement, warmth and laughter. But for many children, this year will be very different.

Donate the £5 you would have spent on your Secret Santa gift this year, and ask colleagues to join in too, and your donation will support children and young people living in vulnerable families this Christmas.
