Welcome to Secret Santa

Thanks for stopping by for a few minutes…

Welcome To Secret Santa

Secret Santa are a Community Interest Company (CIC). We have a shop on King William Street, on the edge of Blackburn Mall, adjacent to the Clock tower. This is WHOLLY due to the kindness and support of the team that own and manage Blackburn Mall.

Thank you for stopping by and spending a few minutes discovering what we do for disadvantaged children.

We are pleased to share that Christmas 2019 was a TOTAL success .. 2020 is going to be even BETTER !

Our purpose is to collect donations from people like you that will allow us to purchase a quantity of age/gender specific gifts that we will make up into "Santa sacks" containing 7 different presents (more below) that will be delivered to the parents of these children.

Our goal is to bring a smile and genuine cheer into the lives of those less fortunate children in Blackburn and Darwen on Christmas morning when they open their unexpected "Santa Sack".

The sack will contain their gifts and a single message "Happy Christmas from the people of Blackburn and Darwen, via Secret Santa Ltd".

Without what we do - These children would REALLY get next to nothing at all. They are in the bulls eye of who BwD Childrens services look after.

We intend providing 7 presents in each sack of gifts (Age/Gender appropriate):

A selection box
Stocking filler
Reading Book(s)
Skipping rope or Football
Board game/Puzzle
Main present
A teddy

Collectively these gifts will help the child play, read, learn, engage with his/her family/friends playing games and really enjoy their own very special Christmas experience.

Each "Santa's sack" costs us approximately £25. So for just £25 we can REALLY help a needy child have an amazing Christmas.

Absolutely any amount you could help us with is a massive contribution to what we hope to achieve and this year we are aiming to help 1,000 local children from Blackburn and Darwen.

So 2020's GOAL is £15,000

Who we Help

It's All About the Children - Though we never forget the elderly either

Underprivileged Children in Blackburn and Darwen.

We are supporting Blackburn with Darwen borough council's Childrens Services Division and others by providing their 8 Childrens centres across Blackburn and Darwen and the main headquarters for Childrens Services at Duke Street and other locations with 1,000 Santa sacks for Xmas 2020.

We are really pleased and proud to be supporting our LOCAL children and ensuring that purely down to the kind people of Blackburn and Darwen, these under-privileged children will have a better Christmas.

As a result of our our work and your support, family support workers and social workers will have a straight forward route through these centres in requesting referrals for the families they work with.

The reason these families are in difficulty are wide and complex. Secret Santa Ltd doesn't get involved directly, instead we leave the professionals to their roles and the families to their privacy and we concentrate on supporting the carers who will pass on our Santa Sacks just ahead of Christmas.

We also help the Elderly and Lonely - When we were collecting, many people told us it's not just children that suffer at Christmas, but the elderly do too. They weren't always elderly and lonely, they have memories of better times. So we said we would also arrange a series of Christmas parties and get these people out and together, enjoying themselves again. In 2017 we helped 100. In 2018 it had risen to 250 across Blackburn and Darwen. In 2019, our goal was to bring 300 elderly, lonely people together.2020's target again is to help 300+ elderly, lonely people
Please help us to continue this work, thank you.
