Wilson Field, whose Head Office is in Sheffield, has teamed up with local radio stations Hallam FM & Magic AM by sponsoring their biggest ever Christmas Charity Appeal; with the aim of giving out thousands of gifts to local children who otherwise, might not have anything to open on Christmas Day.
Cash for Kids
Between now and 24th December, listeners are asked to get behind the Christmas Charity Appeal by leaving a gift at any Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Tesco’s store or various other drop off points throughout South Yorkshire & the North Midlands listed on the website. We will be encouraging everyone to raise as much as possible for local youngsters in need. All donations will go to a child who would miss out this Christmas.
Katy Winterschladen, Charity Manager explained;
“The Annual Christmas Appeal has now been operating for many years and has a fantastic heritage. Last year, thanks to our listeners and the local community, we distributed thousands of pounds worth of toys and gifts to around 4,000 local deprived children.”
She went on to say;
“Sadly, in this area, there are many children whose circumstances and living conditions mean that they would otherwise wake up to nothing on Christmas Day. We work with local social services and organisations to ensure that, as a result of this appeal, the neediest children in our region will receive something. This year we are aiming to help over 10,000 children in and around South Yorkshire & North Midlands and need your help to keep the Christmas dream alive!”
Nick Wilson, Managing Director of Wilson Field Ltd, said;
“Christmas is a time for children, so we are delighted to be supporting the Cash for Kids Christmas Appeal.
“Wilson Field was established in Sheffield almost ten years ago, and we have built very strong roots in the region, so it’s fantastic to now have the opportunity to give back to such an important local charity and hopefully help brighten up Christmas for the less fortunate children in our region.”
Big John, breakfast presenter at Hallam FM’s “Big John @ Breakfast” and Ambassador of Cash for Kids Children’s Charity, said;
“It’s a sad fact that there will be children waking up on Christmas morning with nothing.
This is our biggest ever Cash for Kids Christmas Appeal, and we are confident that it will help change the lives of so many youngsters who are living in underprivileged circumstances or in care. All the toys and money donated locally will stay in the South Yorkshire, which is fantastic, so please help by giving a cash contribution or donating a toy for a child who would otherwise go without this Christmas.”
Once again, we are proud to support local charity and give something back to the community, especially at the time of year where giving is so important.
