Every kilo can change a life.


Loads of Love is an annual Christmas Appeal, first established in 2009. Our core purpose is to provide support to people experiencing financial hardship. We do this by supplying generous bags of non-perishable food items to both individuals and families just before Christmas. 

Help us, help those in need by donating non-perishable food items, or make a financial donation and we will buy the groceries on your behalf!

We were so grateful for the bag of groceries and want to give back. We can’t give much but now we are getting on our feet, we want to give back to the Appeal.

Loads of Love literally saved our lives and gave us the help we needed when we needed it the most, I don’t know where we’d be without people helping the way they did.
