Donate to our Festive Bauble Appeal

Christmas bauble appeal

We are raising money for people with a learning disability this festive season with our personalised baubles.

We will be hosting festive events and activities for people with a learning disability to celebrate in a supportive and welcoming environment. We want our activities to be joyful, with food and entertainment for everyone, especially for those who might otherwise feel left out or be spending Christmas alone. For just £5 we will personalise a bauble and place it on the East Kent Mencap Christmas tree. Your donation will make a positive difference in the lives of people with a learning disability this Christmas.

East Kent Mencap, although affiliated to National Mencap, is independently registered, governed and self-financed. We ask that donations of any kind be fully marked ‘East Kent Mencap’ to avoid any confusion. East Kent Mencap’s Charity Number is 1188118.

The EKM Scrapstore can take your unwanted unused craft items, wool, and fabric, to sell them on to other crafters - raising donations through this second-hand venture. So far the Scrapstore has saved 1078kg of craft materials from landfill!
