Like most of you, many of our fondest memories, or our children's fondest memories revolve around Christmas. Unfortunately, for a lot of children out there, this wont be the case.
Last year for Secret Santa the MorganCarr office decided to change things up. Instead of spending £10 each on the usual obligatory joke present, each member of staff bought Toys to be donated to local charitable organisations supporting terminally ill children and their families.
This year, we would like to do it again, but inspire you all to do the same.
The idea of a family spending Christmas caring for a poorly
child in Hospital is a horrible image, so we aim to provide some relief, if only for a second whilst unwrapping a present, or waking up to a Christmassy bedroom.
We aim to raise £1000. Donations will be split 50/50 - every last penny spent on the below.
1. St Alex Childrens Hospital - A bulk order will be placed to fully decorate the wards, Brightons very own lapland. Usually this is not within their budget, so they are very excited.
2. Chestnut Tree House Childrens Hospice - A general order of Toys, Crafts and Gifts. Including selections from CTH own 'Wishlist', providing specific presents for those Children with more specific needs.
This JustGiving page has been set up to provide a platform for any of your generous donations, even just a few pounds is really appreciated.
We will provide photos and updates along the way.
You can also send toys and decorations to our office at: Unit 9b, Triangle Business Centre, Lancing, BN158UP - and we will ensure they get there.
Thank you for your generosity and please share

Chestnut Tree House Hospice:- We have now coordinated with Chestnut Tree Hospice, and will be providing Toys and Craft Equipment. As some Children have special requirements or abilities, CTH are producing a wish list for us, so we can make sure Children recieve exactly what they want! St.Alex Hospital Brighton - This year Rocking Horse will be providing as many gifts as possible, so we are instead using half of all donations to purchase Decoration for the wards on hospital, something they usually cannot afford - very exciting!
