The volunteers work to develop confidence, independence and social skills but mostly, to give the children and families the opportunity to enjoy new experience have fun and make friends.

Anne Stamp “We have worked with Monks Cross previously and customers have always been so generous in their support. As a self-funded local charity we are very grateful to anyone in advance to donates a gift, the difference they make is immeasurable and we hope to make this a great success.”

Katherine Sharp, Centre Manager of Monks Cross, comments  “It’s great to see the local community coming together to support each other, especially at this time of year. Snappy have recently been subjected to a funding cut, so we really want to give them all the help we can this Christmas.”
