Christmas Day Alone

So its just a week until the little fat man arrives with the pressies.

The kids are getting excited.

We have more or less got all the gifts ready and for an extra little treat we have booked Santa to come to the house 6pm on Christmas eve and give Louis a big surprise (we are all looking forward to that).

That said its all been a bit hectic in the Clarke household so I haven’t had time to write you out a health and fitness sermon today.

But I do have something really important to say.

This Xmas most of us will have:
– Christmas dinner
– Pressies
– Family & friends around us
– Enough food & booze to sink a battle ship
– Even gifts for the bleeding dog

However, some people will wake up to naff all come christmas day.

Some people in society haven’t got it as good as you and me.

I’m including youngsters here, 16 and 17 and 18 year olds.

Some will wake up on Christmas morning alone maybe in a bed and breakfast.

Some will not have a single present to open, no Christmas dinner but more importantly no one to show them love or affection or keep them safe.

This is a fact.

The reason I know this is that my wife works for Barnardo’s in Swansea who offer support to these young people and help to find them safe places to live.

Where they can be given the chance to make positive changes to their lives.

They are in need of people who can provide these youngsters with a room to stay, support and stability.

In return these people will receive…
– Training
– Support
– Financial reward

…but most of all they will receive the good feeling that comes from helping young people who have had extremely difficult childhoods to have the chance of having a better future.

Please read the link below and share with anyone you think may have the room, the skills and the heart to be interested in this.
