For most, Christmas is a magical time of year but for some it can be tough. This year will be no exception and with the impact of the pandemic some families who were previously managing may find themselves being pushed into poverty.
‘Mission Christmas’ is the largest children’s Christmas gift appeal in the UK. Their Mission: to ensure that EVERY child wakes to a visit from Santa. In 2020 £12.7 million gifts and cash were distributed to more than 255,607 underprivileged children across the UK.
This year we’ve joined the mission and become a ‘Mission Christmas Drop-Off Partner’! Being a close, family run business we wanted to do something that made a difference to families at such a special time of year.
Allan Ogle, charity manager for Cash for Kids charity, who deliver Mission Christmas, said: “Families where we live are facing a tough winter ahead with having to prioritise putting food on the table and keeping the heating on. Bills are continuing to increase, and Mission Christmas is here to ensure that children who are at risk of receiving no presents this Christmas through no fault of their own will not be forgotten about.
“I’m so grateful to Polar Windows for getting behind our appeal this year by fundraising and collecting toys and gifts to ensure we can help as many children as possible across North Derbyshire wake up to presents on Christmas Day.”
If you would like to support the appeal you can purchase a new toy or gift for a child aged 0-18 and drop it off (unwrapped) at our showsite on Chesterfield Road, Duckmanton or our head office on Calow Industrial Estate, Chesterfield.
Every child deserves a gift and with your help they can wake up to a visit from Santa on Christmas morning.
