As we head into the festive break, we all welcome the chance to get together with family and friends to reflect, take stock and recharge. We asked the team what they love most about the Festive Season and you can see what they say on Twitter – check out our #StreetsFestiveCountdown!
But for some of the world’s most vulnerable children, Christmas looks very different. I am proud to serve as a Trustee of StreetChild and know how hard they work to provide sustainable models of education in some of the world’s toughest places. This season, we will be making a donation to
 StreetChild’s Afghanistan Appeal, to support key programmes providing life-saving education and humanitarian assistance to 65,000 children and their families. I would be over the moon if you would join us and support their campaign.
Thank you for all your support to me, the team and to StreetChild. 
I wish you all a wonderful Festive Season!
