Blackpool Christmas Message 2017

Christmas is not just about the gifts under the tree or the big meal you have with your family. Christmas is about love, joy, happiness. The reality is, not everyone can afford to put a gift under the tree or even afford the tree itself. Some people don’t even have a roof over their head on the cold winter nights. This is why we teamed up with Blackpool Shopping Centre to bring light to this issue. Our mission was to get the message across to people to go out and do a little something extra for the people who need it the most. When you give up yourself, that’s when you will feel the true spirit of Christmas and that’s giving that’s serving others and that’s when you feel fulfilled.
