Help in Holt at Christmas

Holt residents are proudly determined that no member of their community should be left unloved this winter. “Helping couldn’t be easier, and takes only a moment. Your donations of any sum, a pound or more, are warmly welcomed in cash or by bank transfer. And every penny collected will be gifted anonymously to neighbours, for whom even a small sum can make a big difference. Donations can help put food on someone’s table or a gift in a child’s stocking. Christmas is such a special time – it’s important that ALL our households have the chance to enjoy it.” says Jenny Arkell on behalf of Help in Holt.
