TV personality Billie Shepherd has teamed up with Action for Children this year to design a beautiful, limited-edition charity Christmas bauble. And you won’t want to wait to get your hands on one.

Billie Shepherd, known for The Only Way is Essex and ITV’s The Family Diaries, is one of our celebrity supporters at Action for Children. She teamed up with us this year to design a Magical Bauble in support of our Secret Santa fundraising campaign. This is the first year that we have launched our very own range of charity Christmas decorations, and we are thrilled with the results.

Be a Secret Santa

Many children will wake up on Christmas to no stockings. No presents. No festive food. Your gift could change this.

Billie’s bespoke Magical Bauble is handmade, sustainable, plastic-free and locally sourced. And its beautiful nude, gold, and mother of pearl design will add a touch of glamour to Christmas trees across the UK.

When asked about creating the bauble, Billie said:

I wanted my bauble to reflect something I’d hang on my tree at home. I love the chic but festive design of the bauble along with the ripple of mother of pearl to add some shimmery glamour!

Each sale of Billie’s unique Magical Bauble will raise awareness for Action for Children’s Secret Santa campaign, which helps us to continue to support the children, young people, and families we work with.

For many families, Christmas is a special time to get together and celebrate, but sadly, the festive season can bring a lot of stress and anxiety for some families who struggle to make ends meet. This is why I jumped at the chance to support Action for Children’s Secret Santa campaign to help put the magic back into Christmas for vulnerable children.

Christmas should be a time of magic and merriment. Of hanging stockings. Sharing presents. Enjoying festive food. But for many children across the UK, Christmas is anything but magical. At a time when families are celebrating, others are struggling.

But with your help, our Magical Baubles could change this. Together, we could put the magic back into Christmas for a vulnerable child.

Last year, our generous Secret Santas helped us be there for 765,905 children, young people, and families in the UK.

About our magical baubles

Billie's Magical Bauble

Our Magical Baubles are produced by Cotswold Bauble Company, an independent, UK based, family-owned and plastic-free business.

Each bauble is hand-painted and inherently one-of-a-kind. This means that individual baubles might look slightly different from the one shown in our pictures.

Boxes are made using recycled materials, and box filling is 100% biodegradable. The twine used on the baubles is made from 100% natural jute fibres.
