Churchers Solicitors has this year taken part in the largest annual Christmas toy appeal in the UK, Mission Christmas!
Churchers would like to thank everyone, staff and people in the local community, who donated gifts to our offices registered as drop-off points in Fareham, Portsmouth, Lee-on-the Solent, Cosham and Gosport. You have all helped Cash for Kids give more children a special Christmas morning.
Mission Christmas is run by Cash for Kids and supported by Wave 105 and the rest of Bauer Radio´s regional stations.
Cash for Kids works with thousands of grass-root organisations across the UK who support disadvantaged children (0 – 18 years). Mission Christmas works closely with social workers, head teachers and the emergency services who will nominate families in crisis to be supported by the appeal.
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.
In 2016, the appeal generated upwards of £15.5 million in gifts and donations which were distributed to more than 360,000 disadvantaged kids 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.
Churchers looks forward to taking part in next year´s appeal, and hopes even more businesses and people will join them!
