Barnardo's Christmas Gift Appeal

The Christmas tradition of giving is soon upon us, and the simple opening of a present on Christmas morning can bring so much joy, however, there are thousands of disadvantaged children and teenagers across the UK who unfortunately do not get to experience this happy tradition.

This year, Ductclean (UK) Ltd are pleased to announce that we will be supporting the Barnardo’s, Christmas Gifts Initiative, a project that involves providing real Christmas gifts for underprivileged Children, Teenagers and Families who are suffering in difficult times.

Barnardo’s are one of the UK’s leading children’s charities, and directly work with over 200,000 children, young people and their families every year. Barnardo’s strive towards improving the lives of the most vulnerable children across the UK with the services that they offer, and the Christmas Gift Initiative is just a small way in which Barnardo’s and the generous public can help to make a big difference.

Ductclean (UK) Ltd are inviting work colleagues and friends to purchase one small gift, or alternatively donate any amount of money you can spare, and a gift will be purchased on your behalf. Christmas gifts do not have to be your typical materialistic goods, many of these vulnerable children require the most basic of essentials, including, toiletries, books, bedding and clothing.

Your generosity can make the world of difference. Bring joy to a child on Christmas morning by simply donating a small gift to such a worthy cause. Listed below are examples of suggested gifts:

  • Books

  • Educational Toys

  • Toiletries

  • Hats, Scarfs, Gloves

  • Soft Toys

  • Bedding - pillws, douvets, etc.

  • Puzzles

  • Board Games

  • Age Appropriate DVD's

  • Clothing

Please could all gifts be delivered to the office by 21st November, this will enable us to have enough time to organise all of the gifts and divide them accordingly, dependent upon age and gender. Once we have organised the presents, we will deliver them Barnardos, who can then distribute them to the children over the Christmas period. Please note, any gifts you are able to donate must be left unwrapped, as they will need to be vetted by Barnardos. Gift bags and tissue paper will be available at the office.

If you wish to find out more details, please contact Charmaine Mills in the office on either 0870 112 9196 or Charmaine.mills@ductclean.co.uk
