Churchill donates 270 festive gifts and raises over £2,200 for disadvantaged children this Christmas

Churchill Colleagues have pulled together to raise over £1,100 and donate over 270 toys and gifts to support Wave 105’s Mission Christmas Cash for Kids appeal for disadvantaged children this Christmas.

Colleagues donated toys and gifts for children of all ages to help Mission Christmas provide presents for those who otherwise would not receive anything on Christmas morning. An additional contribution from the Churchill Foundation ensured that over 270 presents could be delivered to the Mission Christmas distribution centre on Friday 15th December.

Funds were also raised through a grand Christmas Raffle Draw run by the firm’s own charity, the Churchill Foundation. Colleagues took part for the chance to win a range of impressive prizes donated by the Company’s generous business partners.

Continuing the generosity, Churchill Colleagues and apartment Owners across the country also raised £568 for Save the Children by taking part in the charity’s “Christmas Jumper Day” initiative on 7th December. This was match funded by the Churchill Foundation, doubling the total to £1,136.

Churchill’s co-founders Spencer and Clinton McCarthy, who are also Trustees of the Churchill Foundation, said:

“We’re very proud to see the response to this year’s Christmas appeal to support both Mission Christmas and Save the Children, it will make such a difference to disadvantaged children all over the country who are in need of some festive cheer. It’s great to see our Colleagues and Business Partners giving something back at this time of year, and we’d like to thank everyone who donated for their generosity.”
