Christmas is coming up fast so I wanted to let you know about our 10th Christmas Bag Appeal early. Quite a few things have changed for our kids in care as last June the group was taken over by a new company who are happily supplying all food and essentials and they’re even paying the carers regularly!!
This year’s appeal is a little different as we are no longer asking for toothbrushes, toothpaste, shower gels or shampoos as these are all provided by the new group. If you are at a loss to know what to buy, a great idea is to group together with a few friends and buy vouchers. Carrefour vouchers can be used for clothes, batteries, treats for a night in or birthday party/presents and much much more. H&M, Primark and Sprinter for clothes and sports items, La Marina Ondara vouchers for anything in the shopping centre especially cinema and the occasional McDonalds. If you would like to do a coffee morning or sell mince pies etc. these funds can go to educational programs which prepare the youngsters for life in the world (often with no familial support) after they leave the homes at 18.
The bags (we don’t mind carrier bags) can be dropped off at any of the ¨Drop Off Points¨ mentioned in the poster up until the 15th of December or at any of the fairs mentioned below. The Bed Centre, Calpe and Amigos de Make A Smile Charity shop in Teulada will be taking in items up until the 3rd of January for Reyes.
Thank you all for your continuing support for these very grateful kids and their carers.
