Aberdeen solicitors supporting Mission Christmas 2018
Our Aberdeen office have been busy supporting their charity partner Cash for Kids with their Mission Christmas appeal.
Cash for Kids work closely with organisations across the UK to support disadvantaged children from birth to 18 years old. Their Mission Christmas appeal aims to make sure every child wakes up to a present on Christmas Day.
The Northsound Mission Christmas campaign asks people to buy and donate an extra present to give to disadvantaged children in the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire area.
This is the second year our Aberdeen office was a registered drop off point for the Mission Christmas appeal and we received even more donations this year. The office themselves were busy buying gifts for children of all ages and had gifts ranging from hand knitted cardigans, magic sets, Barbie dolls to handbags.
On top of this, trainee solicitors Kimberley MacLennan and Kerry Whyte went along to the Mission Christmas warehouse, where they helped sort the presents into different age categories so they were all ready to be specially delivered to kids around Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
Our Aberdeen Office said: “We really enjoy supporting Mission Christmas and would like to say thank you to everyone who came to our office and donated a gift – we were really moved by everyone’s generosity.
“It was incredible visiting the warehouse and seeing just how many donations have been made by people, especially with this time of year being so expensive.
“These donations really go a long way to make what would be a difficult time of year more special for children in the area.”
Gift donations for Mission Christmas are now closed to give enough time for presents to be delivered to children in time for Christmas. Any late gift donations will be used for emergency grants or kept in storage until next year’s Mission Christmas appeal.
If you would still like to get involved, you can donate online or by text. Find more information at Mission Christmas Northsound.
