21 eLF’s

What is 21 eLF’s
Christmas is a magical time for the vast majority of families but unfortunately it can be quite the opposite for some. In conjunction with an anonymous supporter of AIM Northwest we provided a deserving family with a complete Christmas package to help put a bit of magic back into Christmas

Family comments:
“Hi, I’m the mum of the family you gave a Christmas to. I don’t know how we will ever repay you. You have taken a lot of stress off our shoulders. You honestly don’t know how much we appreciate what you have done for us. What you do is an amazing way to help struggling families. Again, I want to say thank you so so much from us all and we all hope you have an amazing Christmas and a happy new year xxxxx”

Sponsor comments:
“I am so pleased to be able to make such a difference through the work of AIM Northwest. 2020 21 eLF’s was such a success;  I am delighted to help as much as I can. Through my own family experiences, I have seen poverty at Christmas, siblings going without so their sisters and brothers could have. Through 21 eLF’s we as a family keep close the memory of loved ones no longer with us”

Referring teacher comments:
“It was the most wonderful gift ever and truly made the most amazing Christmas for the family. 21 eLF’s really alleviated all the stress and strains of the festive period and allowed the family to enjoy quality time together”
