As part of the campaign, which strives to ensure each and every child has a present to unwrap this Christmas, we donated a number of presents for disadvantaged boys and girls across Dorset and Hampshire. The presents were dropped off by Nigel at our long-standing client, Breeze Volkswagen Poole, who kindly volunteered to be a drop off point for the charity.
What is Mission Christmas?
Mission Christmas is a campaign created by children’s charity Cash for Kids, which is dedicated to ensuring every young person has a gift to unwrap on Christmas morning. With 1 in 3 children living in poverty in the UK, it’s a sad reality that struggling families simply can’t afford to buy Christmas presents. As a result, children miss out on the excitement of ripping festive wrapping paper off a brand-new gift on the 25th and parents miss the joy of watching their little one’s faces light up with happiness.
Mission Christmas asks people and businesses in the community to donate new and unwrapped gifts, from board games and make up to books and toys, at one of many drop off points located across the UK. The charity then sorts the presents into appropriate age groups and distributes them to disadvantaged families across the local area for parents to give to their children on Christmas day.
If you’d like to get involved with this incredible charity by donating gifts, you have until Tuesday 17th Decemeber to do so. To find out more information about Mission Christmas and Cash for Kids, visit their website here.
