Christ­mas wish can come true

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

CHRIST­MAS C is my favourite f time of the year. I like to spend it at home in­dulging in fes­tive food and snug­gled on the sofa in front of a film with my loved ones. How do you like to spend yours?

While you and I look f for­ward to spend­ing Christ­mas at home, the re­al­ity for many fam­i­lies with sick chil­dren in hos­pi­tal is com­pletely dif­fer­ent. They face long and anx­ious jour­neys to b be with their child.

This Christ­mas, The Sick Chil­dren’s Trust – a char­ity very close to my heart – wants to en­sure no child wakes up on Christ­mas morn­ing with­out their fam­ily around them. The char­ity has launched its ‘My Christ­mas Wish’ ap­peal to raise £13,230 to sup­port fam­i­lies ‘Home from Home’ ac­com­mo­da­tion, just min­utes from their sick child’s bed­side so that they don’t wake up on Christ­mas morn­ing alone.

A do­na­tion of £30 will give a fam­ily a place to stay in a ‘Home from Home’ this Christ­mas. £30 will en­sure one child in hos­pi­tal will wake up on Christ­mas morn­ing with their fam­ily by their side.

If you can do­nate £30, you will be mak­ing at least one fam­ily’s Christ­mas Wish come true.
