Action for Children and brands for less homeware retailer HomeSense have been delivering our extremely popular ‘Hang a Bauble’ Christmas campaign since 2010, helping to raise vital funds for vulnerable children, young people and families across the UK.

Between 16 November and 24 December 2015 HomeSense customers will be asked to donate £1 for a Christmas bauble, on which they can write a festive message or their happiest childhood Christmas memory, before hanging it on a special HomeSense Christmas tree in their local store.

Last year our ‘Hang a Bauble’ campaign was an overwhelming success – raising over £150,000. This year, with your support, we aim to raise even more.

Hanging a bauble in your local HomeSense store takes just one minute but will help to transform the lives of vulnerable children across the UK.

The money raised in store will support our services closest to their local HomeSense store – this means that any money donated will directly support vulnerable children, young people and families in the communities in which HomeSense staff and customers live and work.

"At HomeSense, we believe in supporting our local communities and helping vulnerable children achieve their potential. With each of our 39 HomeSense stores raising money for local Action for Children projects, it means the money our customers give is re-invested in the area. HomeSense is part of TJX Europe which has had a long-standing relationship with Action for Children, supporting the charity for over a decade."

Suzanne Inch, Head of Retail for HomeSense

Sarah Cook, Director of Fundraising at Action for Children, said: "We have been delivering our ‘Hang a Bauble’ campaign in partnership with HomeSense for the last six years, during which time it has been an overwhelming success, enabling us to reach even more vulnerable children and young people across the UK who desperately need our help. We are extremely grateful for the incredible support shown by HomeSense stores and customers”.
