Cash for Kids found that 1 in 5 children in our area are living in poverty. In the hope of putting a smile on a child’s face on Christmas morning, Cash for Kids launched Mission Christmas to provide families with gifts and grants to help underprivileged children enjoy the magic of Christmas. This year we are teaming up with Clyde 1, Forth 1, Tay FM and Northsound 1 radio stations for the Cash for Kids Mission Christmas campaign to make Christmas special for all children in Scotland.
We are kindly asking for your support by donating new and unwrapped toys and gifts suitable for babies, children and young people under the age of 18. If you are stuck for ideas, we have received books, comics, crafts, LEGO, dolls, fancy dress, DVDs, socks, nail polish and teddy bears. Here are a few pictures of what our Stevenswood customers have donated so far…
How to donate
You can drop off any toys and gifts for children and young people aged 0-18. You can donate your gifts off at your Local Trade Centres in Livingston, Loanhead, Stirling, Falkirk, Dunfermline, Dundee and Aberdeen. To allow us enough time at the Mission Christmas HQ, please could you drop off gifts by 14 December.
Our Local Trade Centres in Glasgow are only accepting cash donations. You can drop off your cash donations to at your Local Trade Centre in Kilmarnock, Shawfield & Govan. You can also donate by texting the word ‘Clyde’ to 70808 to donate £5 or by using the form on the Cash for Kids website.
From everyone at Stevenswood, we’d like to thank everyone donating and wish you a very Merry Christmas!
