How You Can Support Leeway's Work This Christmas

17 NovChristmas decorations for Leeway blog

At the time of writing this, there are 37 days, 8 hours, 26 minutes and 45…44…43 seconds until Christmas. Last week we saw the release of the John Lewis TV advert and with the imminent arrival of the Coca Cola lorry in Norwich, many of you will already be getting into the festive spirit.


For those living in our safe houses at Christmas, the story can be very different. Living away from home and without many of the comforts that the rest of us will be taking for granted at this time of year, if can be a difficult. At Leeway, we do everything we can to support women and give their children as normal a Christmas as is possible – but we need your help!


You can support us this Christmas in a number of ways, including: 


Seasonal Donations


This year we have once again teamed up with Virgin Money Lounge and Skipton Building Society to create three drop off points where you can donate a Christmas gift to someone living in our safe houses. We are looking for the following items, either new or unused:

  • Toys and games for children aged 0-16 (Please note: we cannot accept guns or knives)
  • Cuddly toys
  • Arts and crafts materials
  • Toiletries
  • Hats, gloves, scarves and slippers for both children and adults
  • Tins of biscuits and chocolates
  • Food hampers
  • Wrapping paper and tags

We ask that all gifts are unwrapped and reach us no later than Wednesday 14th December to allow time for us to distribute them around the county. Your donations can be left at one of the following locations:

  • Drop Off Depot: Purple doors of 79 Thorpe Road, Cremorne Lane, Norwich, NR1 1UA
  • Skipton Building Society: 46 London Street, Norwich, NR2 1LA
  • Virgin Money Lounge: 10 Castle Street, Norwich, NR2 1PD

The Leeway Christmas Quiz


If you fancy yourself as something of a quiz expert, you can help us raise funds by joining us for the Leeway Christmas Quiz on Thursday 15th December. We are incredibly grateful to The Ringland Swan pub in Norwich for once again agreeing to host the event and we will be getting under way from 7pm.


Teams of up to six people are welcome to take part and it costs just £10 per person to enter. Your entry fee includes a delicious evening meal (vegetarian options will be available), so it is well worth coming along and joining in the fun. All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting Leeway’s services.


You can register your team and reserve a table by calling us on 0300 561 0077 or dropping us an email to fundraising@leewaynwa.org.uk.


Donate as You Shop This Christmas


Leeway is now a member of both Go Raise and iStreet. Both websites help charities and good causes to raise money through the power of online shopping. All you have to do is register, select Leeway as the good cause you would like to support and begin shopping. From their website, navigate your way to thousands of leading high-street brands and complete your Christmas shopping in the knowledge that for every pound you spend, Leeway we will receive a percentage – at no additional cost to yourself!


If you have any questions about fundraising for Leeway, please do not hesitate to get in touch and speak with us. You can call us on 0300 5610077 or send us an email to fundraising@leewaynwa.org.uk.
