Over 250 toys make big difference to local children this Christmas
Churchill Retirement Living is extending its thanks to people across the South West after its Christmas charity campaign collected more than 250 toys for local children in need.
The retirement developer called on its staff and the general public to buy an extra toy while out Christmas shopping and drop it in to the Head Office in Ringwood, as well as its Lodges across the region.
All of the toys were then collected and donated to Wave 105 FM’s Cash for Kids appeal in time for Christmas. In total, 268 toys were donated for children of all ages.
Spencer McCarthy, Chairman and Group Managing Director for Churchill Retirement Living, comments: “Churchill Retirement Living is committed to working closely with the local community and we are delighted with the response we have seen to our Christmas appeal. The toys collected will make such a difference to children across the South West who are most in need this Christmas and we would like to thank everyone who donated for their generosity.”
Wave 105 Cash for Kids was set up in 2009 to help disadvantaged young people under the age of 18 across the region. To find out more, go to www.wave105.com/charity/about-us/about
