Mission Christmas Toy Appeal

8th December 2021

This year, our Christmas toy appeal is on a mission.

We’re honoured to support Mission Christmas Cash for Kids with Greatest Hits Radio, who last year delivered more than 30,000 gifts to children in our local area. Their mission is to make sure that children living in poverty can wake up with a present from Santa this Christmas.

Some families were already struggling to make ends meet, and the ongoing impact of the pandemic has pushed even more into poverty. For so many people this year Christmas is a luxury they just can’t afford. We’re proud to be part of Mission Christmas, and we’d love for you to make it your mission too.

All six of our branches will be drop-off points for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0 to 18. You can also get involved by donating cash or buying presents directly from their website https://cashforkids.org.uk/mission here you can also find your nearest toy drop-off point.

Here at The Vernon, some of our colleagues will be using their volunteering days to become one of Santa’s elves and help sort through donated presents, making sure the generous donations make their way into the hands of the children and young people who deserve them.

We’re also getting involved with Christmas Jumper Day on the 10th December, with colleagues making donations to put on their festive finery. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see some cracking jumpers. We'd love to see you get involved too so please feel free to share pictures with us on social media.

Thank you for helping the children that need it most this Christmas.
