Mission Christmas 2018
Our academy has supported the fantastic ‘Mission Christmas’ appeal for a number of years now and this year is no exception. We have once again registered as an official drop off point for anyone wanting to donate a gift to this amazing cause.
The appeal aims to help families for whom Christmas is a luxury they just can’t afford and they want to make sure that Santa pays them a visit on the big day.
If you’d like to help out you can donate your gifts at our academy reception. The Mission needs new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0-18.
Suggested gift ideas by age are:
0-3 years : Teddies, musical toys, rattles, books, play mats
3-5 years : Cars, dolls, jigsaws, dress-up items, playdoh, colouring books and pencils
5-7 years : Lego, art and craft sets, skipping ropes, snow globes, jewellery sets, action figures, board games
7-9 years : Footballs, board games, remote control toys, stationery sets
9-12 years : Board games, make up sets, nail varnish
12-18 years : Intricate colouring books, pens, nail varnish, make up sets, aftershave
In past years our parents, carers, students and staff have been overwhelmingly generous with their donations and we’ve delivered boxes and boxes of gifts to the charity’s ‘Mission HQ’. We’re really hopeful that we can replicate this again this year and look forward to being able to make a difference to families in Manchester not as fortunate as ourselves.
Take a look at hits radio.co.uk/mission to find out more about the appeal and the difference it will make to children and families in our local area. Come on Co-op Academy Swinton, we can do this! #ShowYouCare
