We are so excited at Espiritu Salon and Spa to be supporting Homestart in Watford this Christmas.
We were going to have a Christmas tree; but what is a Christmas tree without presents, especially knowing that not far away there are families really struggling at this time of year. So we will be helping to collect presents for Homestart, to be delivered to 85 families with children under 5years old. They need over 100 presents!
Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families with at least one child under 5 years of age. Volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families under stress in their own homes to prevent family crisis and breakdown. Home-Start provides a service throughout the whole of Watford and Three Rivers Districts as well as Bushey in Hertsmere District. It is not just about helping families in poverty, there are many other reasons why a family might need practical help and support.
Please help us make these little children’s day and take some of the stress off these families. All we need is
1) A wrapped present
2) labeled ‘boy’/’girl’
3) and the age that it is suitable for (5years or below).
4) Bring them to our salon and spa at Battlers Green Farm in Radlett.
We’ll pop them under the tree as we collect them and then deliver them to Homestart in the second week of December (so the sooner that you can deliver them to us the better, ideally before Dec 13th).
If you have any more time available (yes I know, that might be a crazy thing to ask at Christmas), they also need volunteers to help out during the festive period.
