Wishing Everyone a Healthy & Peaceful New Year

Click here to see a video of children playing in Valleys Kids’ Centres. I hope it  will brighten your day.

Thanks to the generosity of local people and businesses, we were able to support hundreds of families in 2020, struggling during lockdown. We worked hard before Christmas to ensure gifts and food parcels were delivered to struggling families. In this unsettling surge of the virus and a second lockdown, our staff and volunteers continue to support the local community.

Despite the huge challenges and difficulties, it has been inspiring to see people reach out to offer help. To care deeply about the plight of others, even when some are suffering themselves.

The resilient Valleys’ community spirit remains strong. We will survive, and seeing the joy of children playing, gives us all hope for a brighter future.

Here’s to Peace, Joy and Health in 2021
