Help make vulnerable children's voices heard in Merseyside this Christmas

CHURCHES in Merseyside are inviting their local communities to help bring hope to some of the UK's most vulnerable children this festive season by supporting their Christingle celebration in aid of The Children's Society.

A number of services are being held throughout December and beyond, and are open to everyone. All money raised will go towards providing life-changing support for vulnerable children and young people and to make sure their voices are heard.

Families and communities are welcome to come and celebrate at the festive fundraising events, which revolve around children decorating oranges with red ribbon, cocktail sticks and sweets. These, as well as a candle, highlight different parts of the Christian story.

Christingle is a tradition that has been taking place for almost half a century and these events are an opportunity for people of all ages to join in, light a candle and enjoy the warmth and vibrancy of this special festive occasion.

In the UK there are almost 4 million children and young people dealing with hardship, abuse and neglect which are ruining childhoods and future prospects.

With around 1 million people attending each year, the Christingle fundraising events play a key role in supporting The Children's Society's vital work to help some of this country's most vulnerable children. This year, the charity is aiming to raise ?1.2 million and all funds raised will be crucial to its work.

Matthew Reed, Chief Executive of The Children's Society, said:- "We're delighted that so many Christingle events are happening across Merseyside to help disadvantaged children and we're truly grateful to everyone who attends for their support. Vulnerable children and young people are at the very centre of what we do and we need to make sure their voices are heard so their lives can be improved. These Christingle events in Merseyside and across the country make it possible for us to carry on our vital work and transform the lives of even more children in need of our help."
