It’s all systems go for Christmas charities

Christmas is a busy time for charities working with homeless people and families short of the resources to provide for themselves at the toughest time of the year. This is especially true for those charities with a Christmas focus, such as Surviving Christmas, which will be providing its usual seasonal hospitality. Another event has been arranged at the YMCA. Nick Terdre (himself a Surviving Christmas volunteer) reports. Photos by Surviving Christmas.

Surviving Christmas volunteers prepare to get packing food and gifts. This photo, from Christmas 2014, shows chef Max Scard in the centre - Max died this year and will be sadly missed, according to chair of trustees Ann Andrews (photo: Surviving Christmas).

Christmas cheer for all in Hastings!

Christmas arrangements are in hand to provide seasonal cheer to those who would otherwise miss out due to tough economic or personal circumstances. Leading the way is Surviving Christmas, which pays tribute to the generosity of people and companies in supporting its work. Nick Terdre reports.
