Support for Mission Christmas 2020
This year we are once again asking for support from our Bridgewater school community to make this Christmas Day different for disadvantaged children in our area.
1 in 3 children in Greater Manchester are now living in households where their parents / guardians are unable to heat their homes, pay their rent or provide hot meals. For these families already struggling to make ends meet, Christmas is a luxury that they just cannot afford and, due to the impact of COVID-19, even more families have found themselves pushed into poverty.
Through the Mission Christmas toy appeal organised by the team at Hits Radio Cash for Kids, we can help to make Christmas Day a happy one for children living in poverty and ensure they get the visit from Father Christmas that they deserve.
From now until 11th December, we will be collecting new, (unwrapped) gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0-18 years who would otherwise wake up to nothing on Christmas morning.
Please bring any gift donations to the Prep school gate during the hours of 8am and 9am, from now until 11th December and deposit them safely in the waiting school minibus which will be parked on school grounds, opposite the Prep building.
Whilst we have had to change the way we need to collect donations in order to keep everyone safe, we would be thrilled if you are still able to contribute and show how much we care.
