Our Hartlepool Branch has teamed up with The Hartlepool Mail to once again launch the ‘Give a Little Gift Campaign’ this festive season.
The popular campaign asks the local community to make a disadvantaged child’s Christmas by dropping off unwrapped presents in branch before 10th December so they can be picked up and distributed across the town.
Gifts however small are welcome – you don’t have the break the bank. It’s the 2nd time the branch has supported the campaign, so the team are keen to top last year’s result.
Hartlepool Branch Director Mick Sumpter commented: “We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to continue with this appeal and it was tremendous last year when around 800 gifts were handed over.”
“The people who received them were surprised and grateful but if we had another 800 we would have found places for them.”
”We really want to do much better than last year and get agencies involved and do the best we can. We’re all revved up and raring to go.”
Any agencies or charities can also contact the Mail or MKM if they believe they have youngsters who should receive a festive boost. For more information, please call MKM Building Supplies Hartlepool on (01429) 231500 or Hartlepool Mail on (01915) 017471.
