Regenda Homes backs campaign for Christmas pyjama donations

A Liverpool-based charity is calling for pyjamas to be donated this Christmas for children who are in need.

Pyjama Party Liverpool has teamed up with Regenda Homes as it aims to spread festive cheer through the campaign.

Last year the initiative provided 2,862 children living in homeless situations, hostels or refuges with comfy new pyjamas to wear on Christmas Eve.

Now Regenda Homes is helping mum and daughter duo Karen and Ash Downing, who are behind the charity, to achieve just as much success in 2018 by providing a drop-off point and drumming up donations.

Having also lent its support to Pyjama Party Liverpool in 2017, Regenda Homes’ team leader, Kevin Short, says: “We are delighted to be working with Pyjama Party Liverpool again this year.

“The charity was a huge success with our staff and also our residents, who donated a huge amount of pyjamas last year.

“Our city centre office, Commutation Plaza, which is located right next to the Empire Theatre, is a drop-off point for the public.”

Karen Downing adds: “When we set up the charity, we couldn’t have imagined how the whole of Merseyside would take it to their hearts.

“Getting new pyjamas on Christmas Eve was a massive tradition in our house growing up and something that we just took for granted.

“All we want to do is spread a little Christmas cheer and comfort to children across region, and make sure that those who are less fortunate than us has new, warm, comfy set of pyjamas to sleep in.”

Donations can be dropped off at Regenda Homes’ Commutation Plaza base at 1 Commutation Row from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
