Support SNAP this Christmas

Whether you have been naughty or nice, you can join in the festive giving season whilst supporting SNAP. There are loads of ways to get involved!

28 November – Giving Tuesday

Celebrate Giving Tuesday by supporting SNAP. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, that celebrates and encourages doing good. Giving Tuesday is all about the different ways you can give back to your favourite local charity. Why not:

  • Volunteer your time – see the Festive Family Fun Day below
  • Fundraise for SNAP – host a special Christmas party raffle, holiday cake sale or competition, or join in with Christmas Jumper Day!
  • Support while you shop this Christmas – Sign up to support SNAP via Give as you Live and you could generate free donations on any online purchases. It’s free to use – They turn a percentage of your spend in over 6,000 stores into free funds for SNAP!
  • Donate to SNAP –
    • We still need chocolate donations! – See below for details
    • donate £1, £2 or £5 to SNAP and use #GivingTuesday to shout out your support.

7 December – Christmas Jumper Day

On Thursday 7 December help support local families this festive season dressed in your favourite, ugliest and cutest woollies.

Wear your most festive sweater, donate £1, £2 or £5 to SNAP and help raise money to ensure Essex families who have a child or young person with any additional need or disability always have support when they need it. Whether you are in work or working from home, you can still make Thursday 7 December a SNAP Woolly Wonderland with your colleagues, school chums or family and friends.

  • Put Thursday 7th December into your diary – or pick your own day
  • Share the word with everyone #snappyjumper
  • Get ready for the most festive day of the year!

You don’t even need to get a new jumper – recycle an ordinary boring jumper or swap an old one with a friend!
