Here at SCA Durham we are supporting numerous collection drives in the run up to Christmas. All the details are below, so you can donate as much as you feel able to support those in our community who are in need:
Cash for Kids – Gift Collection
Donate a gift and help to make Christmas morning special for a disadvantaged child in the North East.
Cash for Kids’ ‘Mission Christmas’ appeal aims to raise money and donations for children in the North East who are at risk of not receiving a gift on Christmas Day. The appeal aims to collect gifts for over 48,000 children living in poverty in our region. Please donate new, unwrapped gifts of any value which would be suitable for children and young people aged 0-18 years. Donations will be collected at the Careers & Enterprise office based in the Palatine Centre.
Full information about the appeal can be found online at https://planetradio.co.uk/metro/charity/events/metro-mission-christmas/
