Christmas Appeal 2020

After the year we’ve all had, Christmas 2020 matters more than ever.

Sun FM with our partners The Bridges Shopping Centre want to ensure that every family across Sunderland, Durham and Darlington get the Christmas they deserve.

The Christmas Appeal 2020 looks to help and support The Salvation Army.

Any donate you make, big or small will help make this Christmas as special as possible.

Make a Donation

To help make a difference this Christmas to families across our local area you can make a donation on our Christmas Appeal Just Giving page which will go directly to The Salvation Army.

    Where your money goes.

    The Salvation Army is a worldwide Christian church and registered charity, which has been fighting against social inequality and transforming lives for over 150 years.

    The Salvation Army expresses its faith through charitable action by working at the heart of communities across the UK . We have 650 churches and community centres where we offer friendship, practical help and support to some of the most disadvantaged people in our communities.

    Motivated by our Christian faith we offer practical support and services to all who need them, regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender or sexual orientation. 

    Your support allows us to respond to the people who need us most. 

    • Provide over 3,000 places every night in 82 lifehouses
    • Supported over 13,000 people through our Employment service
    • Supported over 11,000 victims referred to our modern slavery services
