Our motto is simple; No Child Without a Christmas. While our Code is much longer, the key statements in the Code says it all; Goodfellows follow a simple code; It’s helping the chap who’s bearing a load. It’s bringing a smile to a youngster’s face. Restoring his trust in the human race. It’s sharing the warmth of year-end joys. With thousands of worthy girls and boys. It’s helping the young and old to know. That someone cares when ill winds blow.
