Hattons Solicitors Children's Gift Appeal
Calling all those who would like to add a little bit of festive cheer to others lives this Christmas!
Hattons Solicitors is your local community solicitor and it has come to our attention that unfortunately there are far too many children in our local area who do not have the happy home life we often take for granted.
Councillor Eric Smith, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Learning Services at St.Helens Council says: "It is very sad that while most people look forward to the festive season with excitement and a sense of happy times to come, there are children in St Helens who have little or nothing to look forward to with the arrival of Santa actually very unlikely. Your support is greatly appreciated for this most worthy cause."
The Family Support Unit at St Helens Council are well aware of the above, and they appeal every year for donations of gifts for children and teenagers, which they distribute in the week before Christmas.
Here at Hattons we are proud to support such a worthwhile course which is right on our doorstep.
If you would like to get involved and give a child or teenager a gift at Christmas please read the guidelines below.
Children aged 0-3 years old: rattles, books, mobiles, cuddly toys, teething toys etc
Children aged 3-12 years old: toys, games, books, art sets, any other age appropriate gifts
Teenagers: toiletries (male and female), cosmetics, books etc
Please make sure your gifts are NOT wrapped.
DEADLINE: 16TH DECEMBER 2010
Gifts can be handed in Monday- Friday 9am-5pm at Hattons Solicitors reception: 3 Victoria Square, St Helens, WA10 1HQ
If you have any questions please ring Katie Charlton on 01744 762007.
