Operation Santa Delivering hope at Christmas

The Night Owl will be hosting a fundraiser for Operation Santa this year, on Sunday 14th November with Judy D, Jason Ensa and the Lobsters of Freedom, The Needless, Midnight City Soul Band and James Reidy.

Last winter, during the tier 3 lockdowns in Birmingham, a team of neighbours from a road in Kings Heath teamed up with the Spearhead Trust to create ‘Operation Santa’, an initiative across the Druids Heath area of Birmingham. Druids Heath is one of the most under funded and neglected areas of the West Midlands. Operation Santa saw the donation of food, gifts and other necessities to families in the area who needed them the most.

Last year, Operation Santa raised over £2500 for disadvantaged families and children in our local area in less than 6 weeks. The funding was used to support 54 families delivering 180 gifts to 120 children and over 60 parents to help them make their Christmas a more enjoyable one!

This year, Operation Santa is back again, now a registered CIC, and is hoping to deliver even more presents and other necessities to the families of Druids Heath. To raise money for the cause, The Night Owl are hosting a fundraiser with an absolutely stellar lineup on Sunday 14th November!

They will be joined by Night Owl regulars, Midnight City Soul Band, the absolute disco diva Judy D, James Reidy, the legendary Jason Ensa and The Lobsters of Freedom and The Needless!
