I had met Sara Oldham recently who is the charity executive at CFM Cash for Kids and had asked how it was going and she said that the response by the local people of Cumbria has been fantastic as well as the kindness of many local businesses to the many volunteers that have been helping out. She did mentioned that they are need more gifts for the teenagers, particularly teenage boys and suggested things like footballs, deodorant and socks.
Inspired by that, me and my family have gone and bought a number of items for them to gift to teenage boys. We had then dropped it off that the drop-off box at the B&M branch at St. Nicholas Gate Retail Park in Carlisle. When we dropped the items in the box, we had noted things like pyjamas so there can many items you can gift.
So why not join in this community campaign and drop a gift/s off a drop off site to make a child or teen's Christmas!
