Meet the lady who is already preparing for Christmas 2020!


Cat Shofield has been doing something amazing over the past two years by collecting gifts for families and children who are less fortunate than others. She has single handedly been able to gift Christmas presents and hampers to over 200 local children that wouldn't normally get much or even anything to open on Christmas morning.

This has all been made possible by the generosity of her family, friends, neighbours and even people she had never met before, gifting brand new toys, gifts, and even money. Last year (2019) was huge, so huge it literally took over her house and she realised she needed help with it all.

Cat wants 2020 to be even bigger and she wants to help many more families. Along with her newly formed small team of volunteers she has already started collecting toys and gifts for this year.

Can you help? If you have any new and unused toys or gifts please consider gifting them so they can be used them to make someones Christmas 2020 that little bit more special. They have now been donated some storage space in Gretton and are also hoping to have a grotto this coming Christmas to enable families to collect gifts.

Gift of Christmas has a Facebook page where you can get in touch with any donations you may have whether that is now or later in the year.
