With Christmas now just around the corner, for a second year we are looking to support a local charity, Cash for Kids, by acting as a drop-off point for employees, contractors and local businesses to donate presents for children in Lancashire.
It’s a heart-breaking thought, but there are thousands of children living right here in our community who may be waking up to no presents at all on Christmas Day, as for some families it is a luxury they simply cannot afford.
Cash for Kids charity supports disabled, ill and disadvantaged children in Lancashire. They strive to ensure every child lives life to the full and achieves their potential. Last year Cash for Kids helped nearly 20,000 children in Lancashire, with over 16,000 of these being supported at Christmas time. Mission Christmas is back to make this Christmas Day different for local children living in poverty.
In addition to the gift collection, we will be holding a charity raffle with donations from local businesses, all monies raised will go towards our grand total.
