Staying In Touch This Christmas

Published 23 Nov 2017

A suggestive festive poem of an alternative way to help you stay in touch with friends and family this Christmas.

It’s almost upon us, the time is near

So dust of the decs, find your Christmas cheer

But there’s so much to do…. so much to prepare

Gifts to buy and events to share


Not to mention - staying in touch,

With friends and family who we don’t see very much

So fighting the crowds, we buy our cards by the pack

With intentions to write them all – as soon as we get back


But with the rushing and hustle, cars and lights

Christmas bustle, men in tights,

Not a single card has been put in the post,

You’ve been more concerned about the Christmas roast!


So do something different, for Christmas this year

Take the hassle out of spreading your Christmas cheer

Make a donation - to support our cause

And delete “Christmas card purchase” from your list of chores.


Breast cancer UK’s focus is on prevention

To stop cancer rates rising is our main intention

An awful disease affecting loved ones so dear,

And kept them from being with us at this special time of year


Friends will know about the kind deed you have done

For an ecard will be sent that you can send on

So when Christmas is over and the turkey has gone

Your donation to breast cancer UK will go on.

All funds raised through your christmas and seasonal gifts will be used to help us continue our work to prevent more people being diagnosed with breast cancer.

1 in 8 women in the UK will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their life.  1 in 5 will be under 50 years old.  Yet at least 1 in 4 breast cancer cases are preventable.  We work to help raise awareness of the risk factors for breast cancer and provide practical guides to help people reduce their risk.

Over 75% of the funds we received this  year have gone directly towards supporting our charitable objectives.  With your support, we aim to continue doing  even more to help st
