We work hard to fundraise throughout the year to offer our Christmas for Kids shows for free. The hospices and SEND schools we serve each year have limited budget for the work we do, so we rely on fundraising, grants and donations to produce and tour our shows directly to those who need them. Any size of donation large or small greatly helps our cause, and allows us to continue this important work.
Support Our Work
Embracing Arts relies entirely on donations and grant support to fund our Christmas for Kids project every year. Every penny donated goes towards our important work with children with life-limiting illness and special educational needs.
Why not become one of our "Christmas Crackers" by making a regular donation of £5, £10 or £20 per month, and see your name featured on our website!! You will also receive our regular newsletter, and a 'Thank You' video from our puppets.
Give As You Live
Support us for free as you shop online. This fantastic scheme has already helped us to raise over £1000 through supporters shopping at over 3,800 online retailers.
Amazon has a wonderful scheme called Amazon Smile, which donates to us every time you shop! Once registered, you can shop as normal whilst giving a donation to us - at no cost to you.

"Events like this are so important, especially in the run up to Christmas which is a really difficult time for the families. The hospices don't have the funding to provide this kind of entertainment for the kids so to have projects like 'Christmas for Kids' coming in to do it is a godsend for them."
