CHRISTMAS IS THE TIME FOR GIVING
This year has been one of the hardest years we as a country have had to deal with.
So many people have lost their jobs, through no fault of their own and are heading into Christmas with absolutely no income.
A lot of these people will also be parents who now have to face the heartbreaking reality of not being able to give any gifts to their children this year.
Christmas is the season for giving, and lots of people all doing a little can add up to a great amount.
So Wimborne Boxing Club has Launched - Project Secret Santa Sacks
These sacks will be split between boys and girls and age ranges 2-14yrs. Each sack will contain 5 or 6 wrapped presents that the child/children can open on Christmas day.
The sacks will be given out locally but if we have enough we can offer them out to others nationally and send them in the post
So we are looking for anyone that might be able to donate a present or 2 for our sacks. Personally, I can't think of a better gift to give.
You can choose to buy for a girl or a boy, and also choose between age ranges (2-4, 5-9, 10-14).
The two main types of presents are toys and hygiene
Appeals for Toys such as, action figures, soft toys, dolls, colouring books and pens or crayons, bubble blowers, wooden and plastic toys, pencil cases and other school items, stickers, mittens and hats, harmonicas, games, playing cards.
Appeals for hygiene items such as Deodrants, Shower Gels, Body Washes, Toothbrushes
Items that cant be included are batteries, food and drink and living materials such as seeds. For safety anything liquid must be sealed, and nothing sharp should go into boxes for children.
If anyone could donate to our project we would be so grateful. We are happy to wrap the presents or you can wrap them yourself. We are collecting at Wimborne Boxing Club so if you wanted to pop in we are around most days but you can also contact us to arrange a drop-off time if that's easier.
We thank you in advance for supporting this project and helping families to give their children the very best Christmas
