The Christmas Present Project Give it a Go is on Tuesday 25th October 2016 in Baines Wing SR 2.06 from 6pm until 7pm.

Come along at any point to this drop-in session to find out more and ask any questions you may have!

As Christmas is drawing ever closer, it is a time to share, give, and donate to those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

This project, working in partnership with St Vincent’s, aims to provide the wider community of Leeds who are living in poverty with kind donations of food hampers and Christmas gifts, culminating in a Christmas extravaganza at St Vincent’s centre.

You don't need to have a DBS to get involved in this project, so if you've just joined Action, feel free to sign up and come along!


From November, there will be a donation bin next to the Helpdesk in the Universiy Union Foyer. We are looking for:

  • New Toys and Christmas Presents FOR ALL AGES
