Friday the 9th November saw the Cotton Court Christmas party, and launch of our annual appeal in aid of Barnardo’s.
The event was a great success, with customers, friends and members of the Lancashire business community coming together to celebrate and donate to a great cause.
In its eighth year, the appeal aims to collect gifts for the 400+ disadvantaged children & young people that Barnardo’s supports across Lancashire; many of whom would otherwise be without a gift to open on Christmas day.
With the appeal now launched and in full swing, we’re reaching out to the kind people of Lancashire to ask for their help in bringing a smile to face of a young person in Lancashire this festive season.
Debbie Nolan-Plunkett, Assistant Director for Barnardo’s in Lancashire said:
“The Christmas gift appeal, which is always so generously supported by individuals and businesses across Lancashire, is such a heart-warming initiative. We cannot convey how excited and thankful the children and young people are to receive the thoughtful gifts that people purchase for them.”
You can help by donating an unwrapped gift for a child or young person between the ages of 0 – 25, with donations being received at Cotton Court Business Centre reception. Whilst all donations are welcome, there is a particular focus this year on gifts for teenagers and young adults, as it is those who we have historically had difficulty collecting for.
The appeal will close on Monday 10th December at 17.00 in order to allow the distribution of gifts in time for Christmas.
