Jimmy's Christmas Donations

As you will know, Winter and Christmas can be a tough and challenging time for those who are homeless. As we spend time with family and friends, coming together to celebrate Christmas, this is often not the case for someone who is homeless.

We are immensely grateful to everyone who provides us with support during the year, and if you were thinking of making a Christmas donation, there are several ways in which you can do so:

Financial Donation

With your donations you make Christmas at Jimmy's not only possible but memorable. Such community spirit also provides enduring support beyond Christmas to over 400 people who use our services annually.

This year, over Christmas, we will also be providing our residents with a seasonal hamper.

  • Christmas Treats Hamper: a selection of Christmas treats for enjoyment and sharing, including mince pies, Christmas cake, hot chocolate, candy canes, chocolate coins, nuts and dried fruit.
  • Christmas Dinner Hamper: everything our residents need to enjoy Christmas Dinner, including a meat or vegetarian centrepiece, vegetables and sides, a Christmas pudding or yule log, and Christmas Crackers.

These hampers will be delivered to residents across our sites in the week running up to Christmas, supporting our residents to celebrate Christmas together, with their families and friends, and with the local community.

If you would like to support our vital work, please visit here to make a donation.

Goods or Food

We know some of you may wish to donate food or goods directly to us. Please find a list of items we are especially interested in here:

Our Amazon Wish List can be found here: https://amzn.eu/eJ2FClV

Please note that this year Jimmy’s may not be able to accept donations that are not on this list of items.

Whilst we appreciate the generosity of our community, to make sure that we are not overwhelmed, and that staff time is best used for supporting our residents, we will not be able to accept:

  • Clothing
  • Duvets, pillows and bedding
  • Used or open toiletries

Every year, donations of these items lead to significant cost for Jimmy’s, due to the staff time required to sort these items and donate or dispose of them elsewhere.

We very much appreciate your continued support of Jimmy’s and the vital work we do.

A very merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
