Mission Christmas cash for kids robin

Give a little magic this Christmas with Cash for Kids

We’re joining the mission to make Christmas Day special for local children living in poverty!

We’re a drop off point for new & unwrapped gifts for local children living in poverty.

If you donate just one new and unwrapped gift, you can help make a difference for a child on Christmas Day.

1 in 3 children are living in poverty – there are thousands of children living right here in our community who are in danger of waking up to no presents on Christmas Day. You can help Cash for Kids make sure they have presents to open on Christmas morning.

If you’re able to, please buy an extra present this year and donate it to Mission Christmas. We’re looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0 to 18. Visit Mission Christmas for present ideas.

Every gift donated and every penny raised stays local – so you can be sure that your generosity will benefit children living in our area.

If you would like to help support Cash for Kids Mission Christmas appeal, you can donate at our drop off point by 17th December:

The Data Lab
4th Floor, The Bayes Centre
47 Potterrow


There are other ways to participate too, or you can just make a donation – find out more.
