Commenting on the announcement,CEO of Threshold, John-Mark McCafferty said:

"Christmas is always an important time in our fundraising calendar, this year more so than ever, as most of us look forward to spending the holidays in the safety of our homes.

"Homelessness can affect anyone, even those who always had a place to call home and never contemplated that life would be any different.

"This Christmas, a huge swathe of families and individuals, young and old, the length and breadth of the country are still dealing with uncertainty as their incomes have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
