Ignite someone’s spark this Christmas!

This Christmas, give the gift people going through tough times really want – the chance to ignite their passions and strengths to move toward a brighter future.

At Mayday Trust, we work with people going through some of the toughest times in our communities. Often people who are experiencing homelessness, people leaving care services for the first time or people re-joining their communities after leaving prison. We work alongside people to find out what they really want and what motivates them. With Mayday, people can build upon their unique strengths, talents and abilities to reignite their spark and lead their own way out of their tough time to the future they want.

This Christmas, your generosity could mean so much more for someone than a hot meal or a blanket. It could provide someone with the opportunity to use your gift for something they really want, which could make a long term difference to them far beyond the festive season.  An opportunity to not just find their spark, but to ignite it.

These are some of the sparks that people have chosen that would really make a difference and reignite their passions

  • £29 could ignite Kate’s spark for horse riding so she can go on a hack at her local stables. She is keen to meet others who share this interest so that she can make new friends and build her confidence by trying something new.
  • £34 could ignite Abdul’s spark for driving so he can apply for his provisional license and start the process of becoming more independent, see his family more and open up his job options.
  • £50 could ignite Claire’s spark for making candles so she could access a candle making course. She would love to be able to do this and set up her own online shop so she can start to make an income from something she loves to do.
  • £100 could ignite Kira’s spark for painting and decorating so she could get some new equipment to turn her passion into a viable business opportunity.

Every contribution counts, so please donate what you can and provide someone with the opportunity to ignite their passions and live the future they want.
