Every year on the run up to Christmas we turn our thoughts to a very special cause and the people that it supports.
Barnardo’s supports over 400 vulnerable young people between the ages of 0 – 25 across Lancashire. Each year we ask businesses to dig deep into their Christmas spirit and help us to ensure that none go without a gift to open on Christmas Day.
This year we’ve teamed up with Blog Preston to spread the word to even more people, asking businesses and individuals alike, to help up put a smile on a child or young persons face this Christmas.
We’ve been receiving gifts for a number of weeks at our Cotton Court Business Centre reception, which is just off Church Street in Preston City Centre. But time is running out.
In order to get the gifts to Barnardo’s in time for Christmas Day we have to close our appeal on Thursday 14th December at 5pm. We’ve had a good response, but are still some way from reaching our target. We need your help on the final push!
If like us, the thought of a child being without a gift on Christmas Day morning is heart wrenching, then please consider donating a special Christmas gift. You can drop off your gift our reception between the hours of 8.30am & 5pm during the week. Alternatively, we’ve also teamed up with local partners to enable you to donate out of office hours.
Our approved out of hours drop off points for evening and weekends are:
Stratos, Avenham Street, PR1 3BN
Glovers Bar, Glovers Court, PR1 3LS
The Wellington, Glovers Court, PR1 3LS
East z East, Church Street, PR1 3BQ
We’re extremely grateful to those who’ve already donated and made a difference this Christmas, and look forward to (hopefully!) seeing you this week.
