Help vulnerable children in Cheshire feel like they belong this Christmas

Churches in Cheshire are inviting their local communities to help bring hope and a sense of belonging to some of the UK’s most vulnerable children this festive season by supporting their Christingle celebration for The Children’s Society.

A number of services are being held throughout December and beyond, and are open to everyone.  All funds raised will go towards providing life-changing support for vulnerable children and young people who face huge life challenges like abuse, neglect or exploitation.

Families and communities are welcome to come and celebrate at the festive fundraising events, which revolve around children decorating oranges with red ribbon, cocktail sticks and sweets. These, as well as a candle, highlight different parts of the Christian story. 

Christingle is a tradition that has been taking place for over half a century and these events are an opportunity for people of all ages to join in, light a candle and enjoy the warmth and connection of this special festive occasion. 

With thousands of people attending each year, the Christingle events play a key role in supporting The Children’s Society’s vital work to help some of this country’s most vulnerable children.  

Mark Russell, Chief Executive of The Children’s Society, said: “We’re thrilled that so many Christingle events are happening across Cheshire to help us be there for the vulnerable children we support and we’re truly grateful to everyone who attends for their support.   
 
“These Christingle events in Cheshire and across the country make it possible for us to continue with our vital work and transform the lives of even more children in need of our help.”
