This year the pop-up Guildford Lighthouse is running two Christmas Kindness events for families in need who have been referred to us by local schools or organisations. Parents will be invited to come along on their own to one of the 2 events we are running to receive some Christmas goodies for their children and themselves.
The core of the Lighthouse is kindness, belief and hope – so we want to make sure every parent or carer coming along is welcomed warmly into our beautiful space and given the opportunity to relax, enjoy and be blessed.
Our Jigsaw Project is running a Toy Appeal this year, providing a toy for every child referred, and in addition we would also like to offer a winter warmer bank, stocking filler corner, children’s books, a Style Studio, Christmas decoration making and our own Christmas Cosy café. Plus maybe some pampering for the ladies!
How can you help?
Join the Team
We need team for both events and set-up prior to the event days. We would also love to offer some specialised areas – such as Christmas decoration making, beauty treatments and hair cuts. But If you are able to help in any way we would love to hear from you!
