Foresters has partnered with Cash for Kids on several local projects since 2009, including Christmas Toy Appeals, and helped to create the Cash for Kids Family Day in 2011.
We recognise the importance of family wellbeing, not only through financial stability, but also through family time, and very proud to be a National Partner and founding member of the Family Day. Each year Bauer Radio’s Cash for Kids raises millions of pounds for local children and young people who are suffering from abuse or neglect, who are disabled and have special needs, or who simply need extra care and guidance. Based across 21 areas in the UK, at the heart of your favorite radio stations their children’s charities, channel the care of the community into improving the welfare of their own youngsters.
Mission Christmas 2012
Christmas is a happy time for most people, but sadly not for many underprivileged children. It’s hard to believe but every year there are still many children in the UK who are at risk of receiving nothing at Christmas.
We were pleased to be able support the 2012 Mission Christmas Appeal for Cash For Kids and helped light up the lives of thousands of less fortunate children in the UK. The appeal helped over 250,000 children to have a better Christmas and granted £5.3m in cash, gifts and toys to local children.
Foresters is committed to hands-on help through our members. As Cash for Kids have highlighted there is always a shortage of presents donated for babies. So, during November and December last year 977 Foresters Members in the UK helped to create 3,949 baby packs for these underprivileged babies at family focused events, a fantastic achievement and in which we would like to thank all of you for their time and support at these Baby Wrap events!
