We’ve received a big thank you from Mission Christmas for our support in December. The charity were able to provide gifts to 10,736 disadvantaged local children who’d have otherwise woken up with very little or nothing come Christmas Day. Here is a selection of comments from those who received the gifts:

“Thank you for all the presents – I nearly started crying when I opened the bag. I just didn’t expect so many! I think my children will have more than they have ever had in their lives. Please say a big thank you to everyone who donated the presents for us”

“Thank you very much for your kind donations of toys & treats for our youngest patients who spent time on our children’s wards over Christmas. Being able to bring a little cheer & a smile let the children know that our community are thinking of them & makes them feel a little bit ‘normal’.”

“We want to say a MASSIVE thank you for the amazing gifts we received. We work in a highly deprived area so these gifts make such a difference.”
