We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that came along to the Christmas Charity Festival, and to all our staff that took the time to help.
The whole weekend was a huge success, and the Santa Toddle in particular was fantastic! We couldn’t have asked for better weather!
We were proud to sponsor the event and all the money raised from our competitions and the toddle, along with Maureen’s kind donation, mean we have been able to give each of our chosen charities,the Joshua Nolan Foundation, SIMBA and Meningitis Research Foundation a donation of £350.
The largest annual Christmas toy appeal in the UK, Mission Christmas is run by Cash for Kids and supported by Forth One.
With 1 in 3 children across the UK living in poverty this December, for many families Christmas is simply a luxury they can’t afford.
We supported the 2016 appeal in two ways:
- CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY on Friday 9th December where parents donated whatever they could afford and the children enjoyed a day wearing their best festive jumpers!
- DONATE A GIFT , new and unwrapped gifts for children aged 0-18 were donated and our children popped along to drop off the presents at the Mission Christmas appeal
Our boys and girls are all very proud of the fact that they are helping other children, and so are we!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents and family that helped us raise money for Children in Need through bake sales and pyjama day!
We had the pleasure of handing over a total of £330 which was gratefully received.
