It’s Christmas – Festive Jumpers and Cash For Kids!
As well as being about snazzy festive jumpers and Santa hats, today is about charity and giving back. Based in 22 areas across the UK, Cash For Kids is a great cause to support at Christmas. This fantastic appeal provides less fortunate children across the UK with a present to open on Christmas. Key 103 operate the Manchester arm of the charity and provide drop off points for you to take a toy or two in which they then pick up, sort into categories based on who they’d suit before wrapping them and shipping them off to the children – a true show of what Christmas is all about.
The talking point over the past few days has been Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand getting involved and donating £500,000 worth of toys to the appeal as well as 11,500 sleeping bags for the homeless.
There’s something we can all be doing today, especially if we pool together in the office – we can really make a difference.
If you haven’t been aware of what’s been going on, you can:
Find your local drop off point (All info here), grab a toy and donate it.
Alternatively you can donate £5 to the cause by texting ‘KEY’ to 70808.
The smallest things really add up. If we can all do something to help, we can assist Key 103 and their amazing work in making sure every child across Manchester gets to open a toy this Christmas.
