Mission Christmas Cash For Kids is a charity supported every year by Radio City.
The charity collects new toys and cash to support children in the North West and North Wales who are living in poverty. You may think this isn’t a major issue, however, an unbelievable 1 in 3 families in our region live in poverty and it is feared that due to the Covid pandemic, this year, the numbers may be even higher!
Karl Tatler Estate Agents has been a supporter of Mission Christmas Cash For Kids for many years, using its network of prominent offices as ‘drop off’ points for members of the public to bring in new, unwrapped toys in support of the campaign.
This year everyone at Karl Tatler Estate Agents wanted to make an extra special effort in order to raise as much awareness about the level of poverty as possible and collect a record number of toys; we’d love to collect in excess of 1,000 toys. We have also set an ambitious financial target too; we are hoping to raise in excess of £10,000 via our Cash For Kids page. Karl Tatler Estate Agents pledges to donate £100 for every one of our sales that exchanges contracts, each week, during the campaign.
To help achieve our ambitious goals we felt we had to do something special to catch people’s attention so we decided to record a well known Christmas song and change the words to highlight that we don’t want kids to go without this Christmas. We also decided we could bring it all to life in a video.
I have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of my wonderful staff who came forward in large numbers to learn and record the song and to be part of the video production, which we are so excited to release in early November.
Mission Christmas officially launches on the 15th November, however, we are already gathering momentum with our appeal for new toys and have been overwhelmed by initial donations by major toy shops and toy manufacturers and suppliers who have already sent us boxes and boxes of amazing toys to get us started, special thanks to Iain Reid from Wonderland Models who inspired such an amazing response from the industry.
Last year Mission Christmas supported over 23,000 children, this year they are expecting the numbers to be even higher! Please can we ask that, if you can, please buy an extra toy this year and help make Christmas magical for as many children and young people in our Region as possible. Please do not wrap the toy and simply drop it off at any of our seven offices around the Wirral, where you will find the Mission Christmas ‘drop boxes’. If you’d prefer to make a cash donation please click on our donation link and give what you can afford.
Thank you all so much for your support.
Special thanks to Wonderland Models, Revell, Papo, Tomy, Schleich, The Hobby Company, Big Jigs Toys, Hornby, Lego, Toymaster, Tobar, Toys in Scotland for donating so many wonderful toys and to Geoff White and River Motion Group for producing such an amazing song and video!
