Our Christmas campaign, Hope for Change at Christmas, is live and we are asking for help to reach our goal of £30,000 Before Christmas 2023.

We have been providing mental health support to families in Bedfordshire and beyond since 1997, having originally started in Luton. Funds raised from this Christmas campaign will be used to continue to provide our charity’s services, including the Trauma Support Service, the Recreational Therapeutic Service, the Disability Friendship Scheme, the Bedfordshire Suicide Bereavement Service, and the Babyloss Support Service.

Those wishing to support our campaign can get involved by starting a fundraiser and inspiring others to contribute by spreading the word; sharing the Hope for Change at Christmas page on social media and with friends and family.

To help encourage donations, the total raised will increase on the CHUMS Christmas tree on the campaign page, and those donating will receive a Christmas bauble to share on their own social media channels, using #HopeForChangeAtChristmas.

They will also be given the choice to make a one-off donation or subscribe.

Charity Director of CHUMS Charity, Viviane Vayssieres said, “Every pound counts. Your donation, no matter the size, helps us get closer to our goal. We know this is ambitious, but what better time to be ambitious for those using our services than at Christmas? If everyone in donated just £1, we would easily exceed our target, so please donate today!”

This campaign also seeks to raise awareness of the services CHUMS Charity provides in the community. by sharing stories of those who have been supported during the charity’s 25 years.

If you would like to donate now, you can do so on the Hope For Change donation page.
