What is AlterNativity about?... Doing Christmas differently!

‘Life Gifts’ for your friends and family to help the poorest and neediest people at home and abroad

AlterNativity is an annual event held on a Saturday in November with the aim of promoting a different view of Christmas giving. It ‘Aids’ those in need or difficulty at Christmas by offering ‘living gifts’ for you to give your family and friends as an alternative Christmas gift to help the poor, hungry, sick and homeless. National and local charities have a stand at the event and tell you about the gifts they are offering and who they will help. 22 local and international charities that have proved popular in past years have been invited to partake again and we are currently waiting for the full set of responses. In most cases the gifts you chose will make a real difference in the lives of the beneficiaries – and hopefully bring a smile to the faces of all those involved in this ‘giving triangle’

Sadly the event itself this year can’t take place as normal, but you can order your gifts online by the normal mail order process by visiting 

Whilst there are various charities you can support by purchasing a gift, the Rainbows gift is Gift O on the order form – A ½ hour complimentary therapy session and if you purchase one of these gifts through AlterNativity, the money will be donated to Rainbows.

You’ll receive a voucher in the post to pass on from the organisers of AlterNativity as your gift.
