Gift a local child a present this Christmas, the Epping Forest Christmas Giving Campaign is back for its 4th consecutive year.
It aims to ensure that no child living in the district goes without receiving a Christmas present.
Gifts will be provided for identified children, living in care, temporary accommodation and in personal circumstances or conditions that might deny them the kindness that other children experience this time of year.
Last year your generous contributions via funds and collected donations raised nearly £1,500.
The gifts were distributed to children, aged between 2 and 17, who had been referred by local schools and frontline children and family service providers, based in the district.
Ways to give a gift
Local residents and businesses can donate a gift or purchase funds in the following ways:
- Donate to the Epping Forest Christmas Giving crowd funding page
- Select and purchase a gift from the Essex Police Amazon wish list

With the rising cost of living having an increasing impact on many household budgets, we hope that the Epping Forest Christmas Giving scheme will make Christmas extra special for struggling families.
