This year we’re dreaming of a bright Christmas, one where the Prior’s Court Christmas trees are illuminated for all to enjoy, the sound of our own version of ‘We’re dreaming of a white Christmas’ fills the air and plans for bespoke, autism-specific lighting in the Performing Arts Centre come to life. Your kind donation will make this possible and transform the lives of young people with complex autism.

Your donation will light up a star on the virtual Christmas tree and a LED candle on our real-life Christmas tree in Prior’s Court reception. You will be able to leave a Christmas message which will be displayed alongside on your virtual star below and on the LED candle for the young people, staff, and visitors to read, and feel the warmth of your care and support this festive season.

Your generosity also makes you part of our special Christmas song, 'We're dreaming of a BRIGHT Christmas’ which will be sung by Prior’s Court staff. Your message will be featured during the song and music video that accompanies it, and then shared with young people, staff and all those who kindly left a donation.

We will need to receive your message by the 21st December to give our Christmas Elves time to do their magic. Messages received after then unfortunately won't be able to be included in the song, but they will still appear on the virtual and real Christmas trees.

Where will the money go?

We are currently fundraising for a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre that all young people at Prior’s Court can access. One element of the Performing Arts Centre is bespoke, sensory specific lighting. By supporting this Christmas Appeal, you will help bring the Performing Arts Centre to life as your donation will go to an area of the Performing Arts Centre, such as the lighting. 

Please note the finished Performing Arts Centre is a multi-year fundraising project.
