Giving back at Christmas: charity appeals and gifts
This Christmas, more than any other, the meaning of the true Christmas spirit is in all of us. It's about putting others ahead of ourselves, whether that's self-isolating so we can go see our nearest and dearest, or helping those less fortunate.
We've done the coat drive, we've made a reverse advent calendar with toiletries and tins to donate to the local food bank and we've prepared our care packages of cash and gifts for those in need (this year, we're giving kids' clothes to Little Village, sending Smartworks e-cards and supporting families who are struggling with a donation to Home-Start).
We've rounded up the loveliest pop-up charity shops, designer collaborations and appeals to donate to this Christmas.
