Christmas Appeal 2023 

This Christmas the future is looking brighter, because we care.  

This time last year, Grace, Rob* and their children were struggling. Rob was made redundant, their mortgage payments increased beyond their reach and unfortunately the breaking strain cost them their own home. They found themselves homeless.  

Twelve months on, Christmas this year is looking a whole lot brighter, thanks to the support they received from Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre. 

To make this Christmas at Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre all it could be, and to welcome as many as possible, we need your help, urgently. Your donation, no matter the size, will go towards helping people like Grace, Rob* and their children have a brighter Christmas, through Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre. 

Can you help?
