With the festive season rolling ever closer, the Hodgson team are thrilled to once again support Cash for Kids with a very special task. Mission Christmas aims to bring joy and happiness to local families living in poverty and provide relief over the holiday period.
From 11th November, you can drop off your presents at either Hodgson Toyota Metrocentre (Gateshead) or Hodgson Toyota Silverlink (Newcastle). Your wonderful donations will be wrapped and delivered for Christmas Day, ready to be opened by local children who might otherwise go without. And with over four million children living in poverty across the UK, there’s plenty of work to be done!
Mission Christmas is run by Cash for Kids, Bauer Radio’s network of local charities which operates across the UK. The aim is simple, to provide a better and brighter future to children living in poverty. And they’re certainly making headway as collective efforts raised more than £24 million in 2018. Last year, Mission Christmas alone managed to raise an incredible £15.5 million in gifts and cash donations. The efforts were able to help over 370,000 children in local communities across the country. Other popular initiatives include a Superhero Day in May where people dress up to raise money for the incredibly worthwhile cause, and local fundraising activities that run throughout the year.
Our Hodgson team are experienced festive fundraisers and we can’t wait to get involved once again. Here’s what you need to get started:
1. We’ll be receiving gifts from 11th November until 16th December.
2. You can drop off at either Hodgson Toyota Metrocentre (Gateshead) or Hodgson Toyota Silverlink (Newcastle).
3. Your lovely presents should be suitable for children aged between 0 and 18 years.
4. Gifts should be new and unwrapped please – our special helpers will make sure they look spectacular for Christmas Day!
We absolutely love Christmas and we have even more fundraising events in store… stay tuned!
