I am Santa

Action for Children are asking you to become a Secret Santa for a vulnerable child this Christmas

For most of us, the festive season is a happy time. But there are children all over the UK who face a Christmas without food, warmth or love.

Our charity partner Action for Children, are working hard to change this – but they need your help.

You don’t need a team of reindeer, or a magic sleigh. You can do something very special by raising money to give children a hot meal, a safe place to sleep or a present, by becoming a Secret Santa for a vulnerable child this Christmas.

The Action for Children Christmas fundraising pack is full of ideas to get your site involved in festive fundraising. Why not have a Not-so-Secret Santa day and ask colleagues to wear a Santa hat and beard for a small donation?

Get your reindeer antlers on and organise a festive bake sale, or even a Christmas film night! Text Christmas to 70175 to donate £3. You could also order one of our Christmas edition scratch cards for your site by emailing RoyalMail@actionforchildren.org.uk. Your support could help a child have a warm bed and a hot meal this Christmas.

Christmas is a time for giving, and Action for Children are here to give you a helping hand! They can suggest ideas or help plan activities and events. You can also download decorations, including bunting and posters, from: iamsanta.org.uk/kit or get in touch with Vicky, at Action for Children at RoyalMail@actionforchildren.org.uk

Looking for some Christmas cards this year? Head over to the Royal Mail online shop to buy Christmas cards and more in support of Action for Children!

Thank you for becoming a Secret Santa for a vulnerable child this Christmas.
