The festive period can be hard for those living in a hostel or without friends & family. We have a number of refugees & other service users who will be spending their Christmas with our team.


We’re appealing for donations of toiletries, activities & small household goods to create Christmas hampers for our hostel residents.


Everyone deserves a Merry Christmas. If you can help by kindly donating any items please message us or email enquiries@ymcacardiff.wales.


Suggested items:

Activities could include board games, art supplies, colouring books.


Small household goods could be packaged foods (tins/packets), chocolate, sweets, selection boxes, socks, hand soaps, tea towels, small toasters and kettles, candles, bath towels.


Toiletries – shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothpaste, perfume, aftershave, body lotion, gift sets.


We kindly ask that all donations are delivered to YMCA, The Walk, Cardiff, CF24 3AG by Friday 17th December 2021 to allow our teams time to create the hampers.
