Help us make a difference this Christmas

Christmas can be especially difficult for people who are homeless as they cope with not only increasingly harsh weather, but also profound loneliness resulting from often having nowhere to go at the most festive time of year.

The financial pressure of Christmas can also see an increase in the number of people losing their homes and facing family and relationship breakdowns.

Raise funds by simply doing your Christmas Shopping online!

Yes, it's that simple! Sign up to Give as you Live and you can raise money for Stonepillow by shopping online at over 4,000 stores at no extra cost to you!
