Re-posting from the Christmas topic, hopefully the thread police won't bite me grin

"Every year, Refuge try to ensure that every woman and child in their refuges receive a minimum of two to three presents each to unwrap on Christmas day. As Refuge say, 'The Christmas gift initiative is vital to ensure that refuges became places of joy on a day that has the potential to very bleak and hard.'
The charity have a gift list at John Lewis for the appeal so it could not be simpler. You can go as small as a counting block for £2.99, to as big as a pair of roller blades for £40. Whatever you pick, you will know that there?s a child in a refuge somewhere who will have a present to open on Christmas morning ? thanks to you.
Surely, this is the best reason to start your Christmas shopping early this year?
Go to Johnlewisgiftlist.com and enter list number 522953. ( The gift list has to close on 6th December 2012 so that there is time to get the presents to each of the Refuges )

Mosman it is extremely hard to get the address of a refuge. Taxis will be told to pick up a short walk away... Anyone coming in to contact with the refuge is heavily vetted. I used to be on the Management Committee for a refuge and I didn't know where it was! I didn't need to. The Probation Service etc are no more likely to give the details out.
