Love Christmas Campaign 2021
A tremendous success helping those in need
The Caritas office of the diocese would like to thank all our parishes and schools who took part in the Love Christmas 2021 Campaign. This campaign aimed to provide some joy and happiness to those most in need at Christmas by reaching out and letting people know we are with them, and they are not alone.
Through Love Christmas, we joined a vibrant movement of generosity across the UK which together shared a million Bags of Kindness with others since 2020. These bags included a range of food, clothing, necessities, and gifts, with the goal of both helping each recipient materially and enabling them to feel the warmth of human connection and the joy of Christmas.
Love Christmas is a national initiative, growing through a network of thousands of churches and other local organisations, connecting people of all faiths and none.
As a Diocese, we were able to provide gifts and kindness to over 1300 children, families and individuals living on their own and suffering real need. This was only possible by the tremendous hard work, kindness and generosity of so many in our parishes and schools and supported by the Caritas Northampton office.
