Hi, and thank you for taking the time to come and read about our cause for the disadvantaged children of Blackburn, Darwen & the Ribble Valley
Who we are really, is unimportant. We are just facilitators for the kind people of our area wishing to help "their own" in allowing us to provide a "Santa's sack" of presents on Christmas day morning.
We aren't set up to be able to store mountains of presents, and so by asking for money, we can very specifically fill the need with age/gender presents.
We aim to spend £25 on average for each child... so every penny you can manage will assist another child's "moment of wonder" when he/she receives their presents on Christmas day.
£25 = 1 childs presents
£100 = 4 Happy children
£1000 = 40 Children's enjoyment on Christmas day
Any amount at all - will help us on our way
Thank you SO MUCH !
The child will get 7 presents
1. A selection box - every child deserves a treat on xmas day
2. Stocking filler - to add to the excitement
3. A book(s) - To encourage them to read & learn
4. A board game/puzzle - To allow them to play with their family/siblings
5. Main present - Just for themselves 6. A sports item and 7. A teddy.
Our goal for xmas 2017 is to provide "Santa sacks" for 800 children in need in the area so a fund of £10,000 is required.
Every £25 we collect will help another child have a great xmas. £250 will fund 10 childrens presents.
