Can you help Harborough Snowflake appeal?

The Home-Start South Leicestershire charity is appealing for schools, businesses and the public to support its Snowflake Appeal this winter.

Home-Start charities provide one-to-one support for parents through trained volunteers, as well as group support and training courses, to help families cope with challenging circumstances and helps them to build better lives for their young children.

Home-Start has dozens of ideas for how schools, businesses, other employers and community groups can get involved with the appeal.

The snowflake symbol was chosen because every child Home-Start supports is as unique and fragile as a snowflake. One opportunity being promoted by Home-Start South Leicestershire is for people to donate £1 for a snowflake message card at the office, factory or other workplace. Staff can write a personal message on the card before using it to decorate a Christmas tree at work.
