Action For Children
Every penny you donate through #FakesOnATrain will go to Action for Children, our partner charity.
So the real superstar here is you.
Thousands of children and young people in the UK face Christmas without a hot meal, a present or a safe place to sleep. Your kind donation of £10 could mean a day’s food for a vulnerable child. £25 could buy a pair of winter shoes. £40 could buy winter clothes for a child. And £60 could provide a young person with food and essentials for four days in emergency accommodation.
