The Telegraph Christmas Charity Appeal 2018

Each year, The Telegraph chooses from hundreds of applications to support charities in our annual appeal. We believe not only in the essential work they carry out, but also that their values are close to the hearts of you, our loyal readership.

So don’t just make a Christmas, make a difference with an online donation.

This year, our charities’ work ranges from supporting the heroes of our communities, safeguarding young people and fighting discrimination. Your generosity helps them continue their important work all year round and spreads Christmas cheer to them and everyone they help.
