Imagine being a parent knowing that you can’t afford to have Christmas this year; knowing your children will listen to stories about what their friends received from Santa.
This shouldn’t happen and, if we can help it, won’t happen to many families this Christmas but we need your help. We have teamed up with respite charity, Once Upon A Smile, to change Christmas for these families by delivering the second annual Christmas Toy Appeal.
What is the Christmas Toy Appeal?
The Christmas Toy Appeal is a joint initiative between Sedulo and Once Upon A Smile in the North West in which people can make a child’s Christmas one to remember through sponsorship. For as little as £20, you can sponsor a child to receive a gift based on their interests, making this Christmas magical for them.
On top of this, the soap stars and celebrities from Once Upon A Smile will be performing a Christmas pantomime at the Fuse Theatre, Carrington, at 5pm on Saturday 22nd December as a thank you for all those that have kindly sponsored a child. This is a fantastic opportunity to share in the Christmas spirit and do some good with some mulled wine and a mince pie or two!
Please help us out with this worthy cause. These children are often subjected to terrible living conditions, ones that should not exist in present day UK.
