Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in Charity, News on 4th December, 2018

Dust off your best Christmas attire, get festive and join us for Jolly Christmas Clothing Thursday on 13 December to support Our Charity. Wear as much festive fashion* as you like from a pair elf socks, or your favourite light up Christmas jumper, or why not dress as Santa? Donate just £1 to take part.

As part of Jolly Christmas Clothing Thursday you could also:

  • Hold a dress up competition
  • Sell festive treats
  • Donate prizes and hold a raffle

Raising money to support mental health and learning disabilities couldn’t be easier, but your donations will make a real difference to our services.

Services like the Russell Clinic, which supports people in their recovery through a wide range of rehabilitation resources in a residential setting. With £500 from charitable funds and support from Sally Aggett, Catering Technical Instructor at New Leaf Café, Louise O’Neill, Senior Nurse Manager and her dedicated team were able to arrange a party to bring everyone together to enjoy good food, presents and games at our clinic. The Christmas Day 2017 celebrations at the clinic saw staff put a great big smile on the faces of people using the service, at a time of year that can be hard to be away from loved ones.

You can donate by texting DPTC18 followed by the amount you wish to donate e.g. £1, £2, £5 or £10 to 70070. Or if required you can request a collection tin or sponsorship form.
