Snowflake Appeal

About our appeal

Right now thousands of young children are experiencing hardship or tragedy through no fault of their own.

Many families need support to get through some very tough times and this is where Home-Start can help. Sometimes we are their last chance.

You can raise money any time you like for the Snowflake Appeal®. But we go big on it from 1 November to 31 January each year. You will help us reach thousands of children across the UK.

Once again, Kirstie Allsopp is inviting a lucky winner and up to five of their friends to have tea with her at her home in either London or Devon. All in aid of the Snowflake Appeal.

This is the third time Kirstie has Kirstie and Home-Start UK have given people the chance to win. In 2015/16 Catherine Miller and five of her friends from the Romaniacs writing group joined Kirstie at home in London.

And last year, June Kehoe was the winner of our prize draw.

This time, it could be you.

The prize draw launched at Kirstie's Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace on 15th September 2017.

Catherine said, "Kirstie was so passionate about Home-Start, such a great hostess and welcomed us into her home as if we were family. It was an amazing afternoon."

Speaking about why she supports the appeal so passionately, Kirstie said, "When hardship or tragedy hits a child’s family, they can suffer for a lifetime. I'm supporting The Snowflake Appeal so I can make a difference for their futures."

The prize draw will open on Friday 15 September 2017 and close on 31 January 2018. Winners will be drawn shortly afterwards.

COMPETITION CLOSED - the draw will be made soon!
