QCCA Commnity Christmas.jpg

We want to raise £4000 to give households in Gospel Oak a merrier Christmas with a Christmas Pantry and tea party.




There are two ways to help. You can give by card through our Donate button above. This also gives you the chance to make regular contributions if you want to support QCCA on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.

Or you can donate by text using Donr. Simply send a text to 70450 with the word QCCA followed by the amount you want to donate. So for example, if you want to donate £10, you text QCCA 10 (but you can text any amount).


Why are we doing this?

Last year's Christmas appeal was our first, prompted by Covid - and we didn't think we'd need to do it again.

But people are still struggling.

The cost of food and utilities is going up. Many tell us that they can't heat their homes AND make Christmas dinner.  If they have children, they often can't afford presents. People living on their own fear loneliness as well.

We're asking for your help so that we can open a Christmas Pantry. We'll invite people to fill a bag with meal ingredients and festive food treats and there'll be a tea party when they've finished.

The number of people we can invite depends entirely on how much money we raise before 15 December.  Mother Carol at St Martin's Church has already raised £4000 from Love Christmas to help us. But we need to match fund that to do everything we want to do.


Thank you for your help and we wish you and yours a very lovely festive season.

The QCCA Team.

Watch us on Channel 4 News last year. 

Presenter Cathy Newman and QCCA friend Dame Louise Casey came to see for themselves how we served nearly 800 hot evening meals a week from the centre. 

Although it was filmed outside QCCA in November 2020 at the height of Covid, many of the problems remain the same in 2021. It features our CEO Foyezur Miah and single mum Claire, talking movingly about their experiences during the pandemic.


In November 2021, we still run a small food-bank to help the most vulnerable in our community.
