Christmas can be a magical time of year but for those less fortunate than ourselves, the prospect of a winter on the streets or another year struggling to provide a meal for the family can turn a time of joy and goodwill in to something they would rather forget.

This year, UKSV has decided that rather than spend money on cards and “thank-yous” for our valued clients, partners and colleagues, we are donating to two charities we feel need our support more than ever.

Alabare –  supports vulnerable, homeless and marginalised people and helps them transform their lives, providing accommodation and helping them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live a fulfilled life.

Ringwood Foodbank – is a member of the wider Foodbank network and is supported by The Trussell Trust, and provides food packages to help tackle food poverty and hunger in our local communities.

We hope you understand why we have made this decision and join us in helping those in our local communities that need our help at this time of year.

We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and look forward to catching up with you in the New Year!
N.B. Our offices will be closed from 5pm on Wednesday 21st December 2016 until 9am on Tuesday 3rd January 2017.
