Hi everyone!

I thought it might be nice to start a thread where we can gather ideas on where we can give charity donations this festive season.

Feel free to add as many schemes you come across - in Lambeth or beyond.

Thanks!

Of course, there's always still the option of donating food for families in need as usual.
