The Lord Mayor of Bristol’s Children Appeal is a registered charity that raises money throughout the year to help the city’s most disadvantaged children and young people at Christmas time.
Every year, more and more children in Bristol face a bleak Christmas. It is one of the UK’s most prosperous cities but shockingly has the highest proportion of young people in poverty in the South West. Lawrence Hill is one of the UK’s poorest areas with 60% of children in poverty
Our volunteers work throughout the year to raise a total of £66,000 through a gala dinner, carol concert and other events. Through the generosity of individuals, schools, organisations and businesses, we are able to help a total of 1,650 of the city’s children who are most in need. These vouchers are administered by Bristol City Council. This allows us to give each child a £20 voucher for gifts or clothing and a £20 voucher for food.
This year, more than ever, we need your support to help children in Bristol.
