Giving Tree Spreads Smiles

giving tree shoppersHeart FM have helped YLF get into the Christmas Spirit with Bluewater's Giving Tree!

YLF will be able to spread joy and smiles to very disadvantaged children across Kent this Christmas because of the very generous shoppers at Bluewater.

Many of the young people in need that we support will not have the picture-perfect heap of presents that others may see under the Christmas tree this year. So it delights YLF that we can put a smile on the faces of these children by delivering presents from Disney toys, helicopters and Christmas games!

YLF staff and volunteers have already started delivering to families we directly support and to the teams of professionals we work with who will deliver on our behalf to those in need.
