Give Hope This Christmas

Homelessness is devastating at any time of year but at Christmas, when Manchester is full of party goers and people shopping for loved ones, the difference between those that have and those that don’t, is sadly easy to see. We know you want to make a difference so we've come up with some suggestions of how you can bring Joy at this special time of year.
