Kings Chambers selects Wood Street Mission Christmas Project as 2013 Christmas charity
Kings Chambers has announced that its chosen Christmas charity this year is the Wood Street Mission Christmas Project. All at Kings Chambers have committed to donating toys, food and gifts to this very worthwhile cause.
The Wood Street Mission Christmas Project aims to help alleviate the effects of poverty on local children and their families through practical help. Each Christmas it provides children up to the age of 13 with a new toy or books for them to open Christmas morning along with a hamper of food for families. The gifts are given unwrapped to their parents along with some wrapping paper/gift tag so they can give them to their children so they don’t feel their gift is a charity present.
Last year the charity collected more than 35,000 items of food and more than 8,000 toys/books distributed to 4,100 children and 1,891 families. This year, 2,100 families have registered for its support.
