St Martin in the Fields Christmas Appeal

Now in its 85th year, the BBC Radio 4 St Martin-in-the-Fields Christmas Appeal is raising money for people in need across the United Kingdom.
The money raised is divided equally between The Connection at St Martin’s, which provides vital services to thousands of homeless people every year, and the Vicar’s Relief Fund which makes thousands of crisis grants to people in need across the UK.

It shouldn't take the cold weather to make us think about the homeless but it nearly always does. We go out wrapped up in warm coats and hats and, for once, actually take notice of those people that have been around us with no roof over their head all year.

£1 from the sale of all Tobyboo Oranges & Lemons tea towels that feature St Martin in the Fields will go to the appeal which helps not only the homeless but those that might become. They are £12 each from Tobyboo
