Home-Start Caithness (HSC) has a special Christmas campaign to help families who are struggling to make ends meet.

The charity, which has a new base in Wick, said: "Last year, you might remember the Winter Warmers campaign where we provided each family with a parcel of items to keep warm at Christmas.

"This year we want to share an opportunity to create a box of lasting memories. Every child and every parent deserve to have happy Christmas memories, opportunities to have fun and not worry about how to entertain their children when there is little money spare for such luxuries.

"Our families are never alone when they become a part of our groups or have home-visiting teams support. We love to celebrate the wins and make sure there’s time for fun when times are tough."

This Christmas, HSC is going to create special boxes for families so they can "have some Christmas joy".

If you would like to be a part of the #LittleMoments Christmas boxes campaign you can use the Amazon Wishlist to donate. "Please share our Little Moments campaign with your networks, in your newsletters and get involved if you can," adds the charity.

Family Boxes will be made at the Wick Family Hub on mornings of Decembers 14 and 20. "We would love to see volunteers in our community help make each box special – get in touch if you would like to donate your time to help!"
