18 November 2019

We’re almost at the end of November, meaning we are definitely getting into the festive spirit.

Unfortunately, not everyone will be feeling the same. Christmas and New Year can often be a lonely and challenging time for people in supported housing. This is why we are asking our local community to get involved in giving them a reason to smile this festive season.

Jolly Jumper is simply one day to dig out your best Christmassy jumper, get together with everyone you know at work, school or in the community and make a donation to YMCA Derbyshire.

This appeal will enable us to keep people safe, supported and fed this Christmas. Last year, we were able to support 300 young people during the season, preventing loneliness with a range of fun activities and serving warm meals.

We appreciate absolutely every bit of support you give, so if you feel you aren’t able to wear a Jolly Jumper, you could also donate to our Christmas appeal via this link: virginmoneygiving.com/fund/YMCAJollyJumper

Thank you so much for your support in advance – together we can ‘change lives.’
