In Cheshire and North Wales there are a worrying number of children living below, on, or just above the poverty line. Some are living in sheltered accommodation or refuges.
For the last two years. Dandy’s Topsoil, with the help of SHARE, have led a “Sponsor a Child’s Presents at Christmas-time” campaign which has been hugely successful.
Last year, thanks to all of you lovely people and the amazing folk at Moneypenny and SHARE we were able to provide over 160 of these children with sacks brimming with presents, and the chance to meet Santa at the fabulous Cheshire Ice Cream Farm.
So – we want to do it all again and we’re hoping that you’ll want to get involved again too! We’ve split the children into boys and girls and then into 8 age groups – we’d really like to secure at least ten sponsors for each age group to make sure that every child has at least one or two fabulous Christmas presents.
Gifts can be dropped off at:
CHESTER: Dandy’s Topsoil, Yew Tree Farm, Sealand Road, Chester, CH1 6BS.
Mon - Fri 7am - 5pm, Sat 8am - 12noon.
(Amazon purchases can come here directly too, just be sure to leave a note when you’re checking out so we know who you are and who your gift is for!).
SHARE, 47 Northgate Street, Chester, CH1 2HQ.
Mon - Sat 10am - 4pm.
SHARE, Old County Library, Raikes Lane, Mold, CH7 6NW.
Mon - Thurs, 9.30am - 2pm, Weds evenings - 6.30pm - 8.30pm.
We suggest a spend of between £10 and £20 for those sponsoring, and miscellaneous drop offs of sweets, selection boxes, stocking fillers and wrapping paper are also hugely appreciated!
So – in the comments we’ll put a comment on for each age group – just “reply” to the comment featuring which child you would like to sponsor!
Don’t forget to share, share, share this post with all of your friends, families and colleagues to get the word out there and make this Christmas one to remember for some of the most vulnerable in our society!
