This year, instead of sending Christmas cards, Athona has made a donation to the 2014 Crisis at Christmas Appeal.

Crisis is a national charity dedicated at ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services, as well as campaigning for change.

A donation of just £21.62 will ensure a place is reserved for one person to enjoy three nutritious hot meals, including a Christmas dinner, and the chance to shower and change their clothes this Christmas.

For further information into how you can help this Christmas, please visit the Crisis website.
