Golden Lion Children’s trust (GLCT)

Golden Lion Children's Trust

The Golden Lion Children’s Trust provide hope, help, and happiness to children with special needs and disadvantaged young people.

Christmas campaign

During December 2018 we ran a Christmas campaign where we donated £2 for each retweet of our post by @Peoplespension. This campaign raised an impressive £643 for charity.  The donation helped to pay for the children to see The Return of Mary Poppins.

Present wrapping

On Christmas Eve, GLCT delivered sacks of presents to local children of disadvantaged families or families in crisis. Each child received four personalised items in their sack, chosen with help from a parent or carer.

As GLCT now support over 150 families, they need all the help they can get.

B&CE help by providing presents to children who, in GLCT’s words, often ‘have little else to look forward to at Christmas time’. Together we managed to wrap over 150 presents – we had so many eager volunteers that we had to cancel the last session as there was nothing left to wrap!
