Fife Gingerbread has unveiled its Heat and Eat campaign

A charity has launched an appeal to keep families fed and warm this winter.

Fife Gingerbread, which supports and empower lone parents and families in need living in the Kingdom, has unveiled its Heat and Eat campaign.

The money raised through the appeal ensures that vulnerable families are supported throughout the year to provide safe, warm and healthy homes for their children and young people. This includes providing crisis support when needed, facilitating group sessions, feeding families, creating fun family learning opportunities and providing support with travel costs. All of the money raised will be used to directly benefit the families accessing our support.

The campaign will also help some families with a festive package (which can include toys, food and fuel) to ensure that children and young people living in low income households have a magical Christmas.

Last year, Fife Gingerbread supported 114 families (including 212 children and young people) to have a safe and warm Christmas, and shared some of the incredible donations with Fife Women’s Aid, Methilhill Children Community Initiative and Fife Migrants Forum.

You can find out more and donate to the appeal online.
