Northorpe Hall Child and Family Trust have officially launched their annual Christmas Appeal, to help support struggling families across Kirklees.

The Mirfield-based trust, which is located on Northorpe lane, is requesting support in the form of food donations, gifts and hampers to help support young people across Kirklees who would otherwise go without at Christmastime.

Liz Robinson, volunteer and co production manager at Northorpe Hall, said: “For many families Christmas is a time of celebration, but for some it’s a time of sadness, loneliness and worrying how to make ends meet.

“For some of the families we’re supporting, we try to make this time a little easier, easing the additional pressures by providing food hampers and Christmas gifts.

“We know it makes a world of difference.”

The Northorpe Hall Christmas Appeal has been running for eight years, and last year supported over 50 families with gifts and food hampers.

This year, the team at Northorpe Hall hope to help just as many, if not more, families who will be struggling this year due to the cost of living crisis.

A family who received the gifts last year said: “Its lovely knowing someone cares like this for us - thank you”
