Making Memories… Giving Hope

And that's a wrap!

Share

On Thursday 3rd December, we hosted our annual Christmas present wrap. This year it was even bigger and better than ever before...

We send every child that comes on a CHICKS break throughout the year individually wrapped Christmas presents. In 2015, over 1,100 children came on a break - which meant we had over 2000 presents to wrap!

The event was hosted by RAF St Mawgan - where we are the charity of the year. Over 220 CHICKS supporters, volunteers and forces staff from the RAF and HMS Raleigh came together to wrap the presents in record time.

A raffle and sales of Christmas cards at the event also meant we raised over £600 on the day! £500 of that was match funded by HSBC, who also presented us with a cheque for £900 to sponsor a child on a break, meaning we raised a grand total of just over £2000. 

Thank you to everyone supported the event - because of you, over a thousand children will have a smile on their faces this Christmas!
