Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas 2015: Drop Off Point at Weetwood Hall
Christmas is a magical time, especially for children. Though for families who can’t afford to buy their children presents and other festive treats, what should be the most enchanting time of the year can be fraught with worry, unhappiness and disappointment.
This is where Radio Aire’s Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas steps in.
Radio Aire’s Cash for Kids is a charity dedicated to supporting children who are sick, deprived and require additional support.
One of Cash for Kids’ biggest projects is its Mission Christmas campaign. The project involves people donating presents, clothes, toys and other items at various drop-off points around the country to ensure that disadvantaged children wake up to presents on Christmas morning.
Mission Christmas is just round the corner.
On Monday 16th November Radio Aire’s Cash for Kid’s Mission Christmas 2015 campaign will begin. Working in partnership with many organisations, hundreds of drop off points will open in different areas across Leeds and West Yorkshire. The campaign appeals for people to buy just one extra gift to help a disadvantaged child have a happy Christmas.
Mission Christmas in West Yorkshire
Cash for Kids is the official charity of Radio Aire, West Yorkshire’s local radio station. Last year the Mission Christmas appeal generated more than £936,000 worth of gifts to 18,730 children.
Radio Aire’s Cash for Kids needs your support. They are looking for new and unwrapped items, which are suitable for babies, children and teenagers aged 0 – 18.
You can donate items to various drop-off points throughout Leeds and West Yorkshire, including one at Weetwood Hall.
Radio Aire’s Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas campaign is looking for different types of toys and gifts, including practical items such as baby wipes and other toiletries.
The charity asks people to try and refrain from donating technology-based items and instead aim to bring more traditional toys and gifts such as scooters, books and board games that don’t require technology or power to operate.
Cash for kids requires items that cater for a broad age range, including older children and teenagers.
You can stay up-to-date on what type of presents and age groups Cash for Kids needs the most in West Yorkshire by following Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas on Twitter @CashforKidsAire and on Facebook at Radio Aire’s Cash for Kids.
