Grindeys Support the Alice Charity Christmas Appeal

It may not look like a lot to you..........but if it’s ALL you get for Christmas it’s a lot.


For some poverty makes Christmas a time of misery and despair. Some families can barely afford to eat never mind tuck into a festive feast and there are children out there who think that Santa doesn’t visit them.

Would it really make a huge difference to your Christmas shopping bill to add on a few extra items?

The Alice Charity  are asking for donations to create Christmas boxes to distribute to poor families in our local area.

Can you help to bring a little joy to a local, less fortunate family?

Grindeys Solicitors is located in Stoke just around the corner from the main Railway station and anyone who has any gifts to donate is welcome to drop them off to our reception at Glebe Court, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 1ET

No time to shop and drop? You can donate on the Alice Charity just giving page.
