Making Memories… Giving Hope

Christmas Superstars: Meet Will!


Meet another of our amazing Christmas volunteers, Will! 

This year’s Christmas break will be Will’s third time volunteering at CHICKS. Will said: “I want to volunteer at Christmas as it can be a very fun, enjoyable and magical time of year for children. I want to enable the children to have the kind of Christmas that they have heard and know about, but have not necessarily experienced themselves.”

Will’s favourite thing about volunteering at CHICKS is seeing the difference in the children after their week: “One boy went from at the talking to only or two people beginning of the week, to telling jokes and making everybody laugh by the end of it. The happiness and joy he got out of the week remind me how much of a difference positive memories made at CHICKS can make.”

This year, our Christmas break has been generously sponsored by Ginsters. But we are already booking children onto our 2017 breaks, and we really need your help. Support us here.
