£5 to buy Christmas dinner for a homeless person, or a gift for homeless children, families and individuals to open on Christmas morning

Over the last few years, you’ve made an unbelievable difference to the lives of homeless people in our communities.

You’ve donated almost 300,000 times; providing so many hot meals that not a single homeless person has been turned away from Social Bite cafes since we began raising funds in 2014; you’ve given thousands of refugees winter essentials; and even helped to build a village to break the cycle of homelessness.

We want to help even more people, which is why this year we’ll not only be helping people in Scotland, but also across Manchester and Newcastle.

For just £5, you can make an unimaginable difference to someone’s life. We’re asking you to give a homeless person a hot meal and somewhere to go on Christmas day, giving them the chance to eat Christmas dinner in a café with good company.

We also want to make sure that homeless children, families and individuals get a gift to open on Christmas morning. Each gift makes a true difference to every family, with parents able to tell excited children that Santa's been, allowing them to forget their troubles for one day and enjoy a normal Christmas.

Long-term support

In 2014, we asked our members to donate £5 to buy enough meals to support 800 people at Christmas. We were blown away when tens of thousands of you donated, blowing our 800 meal target out of the water! Since then, you’ve donated almost 300,000 times, allowing us to provide hot Christmas dinners to some of the country’s most vulnerable people. Not only that, the extra money raised has meant we’ve been able to support long-term projects to help end homelessness.

Gifts for those who need it most

For homeless children, families and individuals across the country, it goes without saying that Christmas is a hard time of year. Often not getting any gifts at all, homeless families can miss out on the magic of a day when others are lucky enough to enjoy so much. By donating £5, you can help Social Bite buy gifts that they’ll then deliver to families and children, making sure they have a gift to open on Christmas Day.
