QCCA's Christmas Appeal 2020
It's been a hard year - which is why we're launching our first ever Christmas appeal. We want to give 300 hampers to people who could do with a little more festive cheer than usual.

Spread the word
'Christmas in a Box' is a big undertaking and we've never done anything like it before. But amongst all the sadness of Covid, this year has also reminded us how amazing and resilient our community is.
You can help by sharing our gofundme page with friends and family to get the message out there.
