Cheerful Sparrows, your local Thanet charity, is run by volunteers who ensure every penny raised goes to help someone for whom just a little help means a lot. As a ‘Friend of The Cheerful Sparrows’ we promise to send you regular newsletters about our work.
We are proud that we have helped over 170 families during the Covid pandemic. Cheerful Sparrows Thanet was one of the few charities to keep going. As a result, our lack of funds now means that the future of our small, local charity is uncertain, after nearly 100 years of helping those most in need in the Thanet community. We only take referrals from professionals such as health workers, social workers and teachers who know the individuals and families well. We help in small ways to make a big difference to people’s lives. One mum said recently, “It is wonderful to know that there are people out there who really care.”
A regular income from our good friends will help us and the people of Thanet look to a much brighter future.
A sincere ‘Thank You’ from all of us.

The Cheerful Sparrows Charity and its Trustees will not share any information from or about you with any third party and will treat all such information in strict confidence.
This is a special appeal from Cheerful Sparrows to all the lovely people who have helped us in the past and to those who might help us now. We are still supporting our wonderful NHS and keeping in touch with the staff in the Cheerful Sparrows Wards at the QEQM Hospital – and our work in the wider local community is now more important than ever.
We are working hard to help local people during this Coronavirus crisis. Individuals and families, who were already facing extreme hardship before it began, desperately need our help. Working with professionals such as Social Workers, Early Help Workers and Teachers, we are providing beds and bedding for children, for example. We are trying to make sure that home means a safe, restful place when the world out there is uncertain.
We now need your help so that we can help the people of Thanet who need it most. Please will you help us by making a donation?
Whatever you can afford will make a big difference to the lives of local people.
P.S. Let us hope that we will all be making footprints in the sand again very soon.
