This Christmas the Forged Solutions Group is giving more than 250 presents to children living in poverty in South Yorkshire, through Hallam FM’s Mission Christmas – Cash for Kids initiative.
The Group is a long-term supporter of Hallam FM’s Christmas fundraising campaign and every year staff are invited to donate new toys for children in local communities who otherwise may not receive presents at Christmas.
Donation boxes were placed across three of the Group’s sites in South Yorkshire and were quickly filled with brand new toys including Barbie dolls, toy cars, and sports equipment, all of which will go to children aged 0-16 years.
The Forged Solutions Group also raised £470 from their Christmas Raffle, which they spent on buying more toys for the appeal.
As many families in South Yorkshire find themselves in poverty this year due to the devastating impact of the pandemic, the Group has been more determined than ever to ensure every child still receives a gift from Santa.
Ben McIvor, President of Forged Solutions Group, says,
“The annual Cash for Kids campaign has become a tradition that the Forged Solutions Group gets behind and our workforce has always shown so much kindness and enthusiasm in their donations.
“2020 has been a difficult year and money is tight for lots of households in our region. But all children deserve to get something nice under the Christmas tree and I am so proud of our team for making that a reality for hundreds of families this Christmas.”
