Supporting Very Special Kids this festive season

Young twin boys are sitting on a sofa. They are wearing Christmas reindeer antlers and holding presents with a big red bow. They are smiling at the camera.

It may be December already, but 2022 is not over yet! Thanks to our very special community hosting Christmas fundraising activities, there are plenty of ways you can support Very Special Kids this festive season!

Three young adults are holding carol books and candles. One is wearing a Santa hat.
