We are preparing to bring hope to people in despair this Christmas.


For so many people, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without The Salvation Army.

This Christmas, in over 600 communities across the UK, we will be organising festive lunches for people who would otherwise be spending Christmas alone. We will be delivering gifts for children whose parents are too poor to afford presents. 

We will be giving parcels of food to people who are facing dire hardship and cannot buy even the bare necessities of life. We will be visiting people who are sick or bereaved. And we will be opening our doors to anyone who is distressed and friendless.

This is what Christmas means to The Salvation Army. When people are facing truly difficult times, and seemingly without a friend in the world, we need to be there to help them. 

Please support our Christmas Appeal so we can provide support to those in desperate need.

A gift of:

  • £9 could provide one-to-one support work for a homeless person in one of our centres.

  • £19 could help provide a box of groceries and modest gifts, so that families who are struggling in poverty can share a basic Christmas meal together.

  • £45 could provide a Christmas dinner and the promise of companionship for six lonely older people.
