Last year, we have raised over £12,000 for families in need - over 500 received Christmas food parcels due to your generous donations. Can you help those in need this year and boost our efforts again?

Great Perthshire are supporting Giraffe this Christmas

Since April 2020, Giraffe has provided more than 35,000 free meals to people in need in Perth, including 500 Christmas food baskets last Christmas for families in need. This year hasn’t been much better than the last and we want to ensure that, again, no one has to spend Christmas without a good meal. So we have teamed up with a simple aim – to give 500 people in need a magical Christmas – a compassionate Christmas.

Like last year, this simple aim comes with a simple target – we plan to raise £10,000 to make this happen!

Each person will receive a Christmas parcel containing:

  • A full 3 course Christmas dinner prepared by Giraffe
  • A selection of Perthshire’s finest food and drink products
  • Some tasty treats (we have to get some chocolate in there!)
  • And loads more!

We’re going to work with other local charities such as Letham4All, Perth Foodbank, TullochNet and Caledonia Housing to distribute these parcels to people in need.

Donate now

You can donate to Giraffe directly by visiting their Now Donate Checkin Works website, where every penny donated will go directly to ensuring people with learning disabilities, autism and mental ill health get work and life experiences that will help them lead productive independent lives.

Contribute to the parcels

The team at Giraffe will be arranging for a delicious, wholesome three course meal to be included in the Christmas parcel, however, if you or your business are in a position to make these parcels even more special, we want to hear from you. We’d like to hear from anyone who can add that metaphorical cherry on top.

Become a fundraiser superstar

We are looking to meet as many people as we can who can set our ambitious target for the Christmas campaign between now and Christmas. For example, if we can find 20 superstars who can raise £500 each, we will reach our target of £10,000. Fundraising is difficult in this environment, but we will support you with ideas, social media support and whatever socially distanced cheerleading we can muster.
