Thank you from All at HVDV with all your support with the Christmas Appeal 2015.
HVDV received just over 806 boxes/ Gift bags. I would like to Thank you all personally for helping us with our Christmas Appeal 2015. We hoped to achieve more than last year which was 613 and we smashed it by achieving 806+.
we helped different families across Wiltshire who had suffered and fled domestic abuse which were in refuge and ones who had not long left refuge to rebuild their lives again. as the feedback comes in it will be updated on this site
Below are comments from Refuge and outreach workers who gave to families and families who received gifts via refuge from this year’s appeal 2015.
I have spoken to our outreach worker re the reaction from the two families who she delivered the Christmas boxes to, she said that the mums were both overwhelmed by the amount of gifts and very grateful to have been included.
so thank you very much.”.
Happy New Year to you all!!
What can I say, thank you just doesn’t seem enough, all the women and children loved all the gifts, thank you, thank you so much, we really cannot express in words what your support means to us each year, what would we do without you.
All I can say is you made so many people happy, they could not believe the generosity and how many gifts they received, some even commented, “this is the best Christmas” and as we are a refuge that was good to hear,
Firstly I would like to say how grateful the support workers and I are for the presents the children received. were really pleased you guys were able to do this.
Everyone we have had feedback from were so overwhelmed by the gifts and how kind people can be which is lovely considering what they have been through.
