Little Maisie-Rose spreads the joy of Christmas giving by donating her Christmas Money to help the Homeless in Fife!

The joy of Christmas was warmly felt by the team at Frontline Fife today.

Four year old little Maisie-Rose Watters of Leven decided after a visit with family in Scunthorpe and seeing people sleeping rough that she would donate her Christmas Money of £53 to help those who are homeless.

Her mother Michelle Watters said that although they had explained homelessness to Maisie-Rose, her wish to help those in need had come as a complete surprise admitting that her daughter’s  concern and compassion for those sleeping rough brought tears to her eyes. She said, “I had to support Maisie-Rose so we decided that it would be better to support a local charity and we found Frontline Fife online.” 

Maisie-Rose and her mum spent the afternoon with Frontline Fife’s CEO, Caryn Nicolson and team to learn more about how homeless people are supported and how her donation could help. Caryn said, “Maisie-Rose is our youngest donor ever and a delightful little girl who demonstrates a level of compassion beyond her years. She is truly remarkable. She is Frontline Fife’s Christmas angel”. Fife has the third highest presentations of homelessness in Scotland but this is often unrecognised due to the hidden nature of homelessness in rural communities. Our team continues to work tirelessly to raise awareness of the need to end homelessness in Fife.  We wish to thank Maisie-Rose and others who have supported our Justgiving Christmas Campaign and we hope that the good will of all our donors continues to spread the joy of giving”. 

In support of Frontline Fife’s Just Giving Christmas campaign, Maisie-Rose chose to donate her funds to bus tickets for homeless people to visit their families at Christmas. On giving her funds over she said, “I’m giving my money because I have a family and everyone should see their family at Christmas”.
