The Parenting Network sends powerful message about abuse through Christmas pyjama appeal

Working with Stop Domestic Abuse, The Parenting Network wants as many children as possible to snuggle up on Christmas Eve reading a book in cosy Christmas Pyjamas with their Christmas Pyjama Crowdfunder Campaign this year.

Over the last 2 years, thanks to your generous support, they were able to deliver over 530 pairs of Christmas pyjamas and books to children living in refuges across Hampshire over Christmas and want to do it again this Christmas.

The lockdowns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic have seen considerable rises in Domestic Abuse, with charities reporting a huge surge in demands for their services. Sadly, more families than ever will be seeking safety in refuges this Christmas.

Most families have fled without notice and have very few belongings. The Parenting Network knows that pyjamas and a book will not make a huge difference to the situation many of these families are going through, but simple acts of kindness can mean the world and send a compelling message.
