Since BCM was founded in 1889 the Christmas programme has continued to be a significant event each year. In spite of the passing of time the programme is still very much needed with people depending on food and toy donations to ease the financial pressures that exist at this time of the year.
BCM’s Christmas Support Programme has not only financial aspect as the food and toy parcels are distributed, but it also gives hope and emotional support to those who struggle as they know there is somebody “to look after them at Christmas as money is tight” ( Emma, Service User).
Thanks to your financial, volunteer and prayerful support in 2017 BCM distributed 3,240 toy and gift parcels to children and young people and 1,260 food parcels to older people and families who needed them most.
We would greatly appreciate your support once again. You can donate new toys or food or you can make a financial donation. Donations can be left during office hours at Grosvenor House, 5 Glengall Street, Belfast, BT12 5AD. The deadlines for delivery of food/toys are as follows:-
Food by Wednesday 11th December (non-perishable please) Toys by Monday 17th December (new toys only please)
