We are delighted to announce that we are a drop off point for the Mission Christmas charity. The charity is looking for donations of toys for children aged 0 to 18. The donations need to be unwrapped and in original packaging. All donations need to be dropped to our office by the 15th December.
In 2016 the appeal generated upwards of £15.5 million in gifts and donations which were distributed to more than 360,000 disadvantaged children across the UK.
With 1 in 4 children across the UK living in poverty this December, for many families Christmas is simply a luxury they can’t afford. This year’s Mission Christmas aims to beat last year’s fundraising total and help make sure it can help as many children as possible.
In advance of the launch (and throughout the campaign) organisations nominate the children they support, highlighting their age, gender and any special needs. Cash for Kids therefore knows how many children Mission Christmas is hoping to support and what age groups may be struggling for gifts throughout the appeal.
