MKM Hartlepool brings festive joy to local children in need

MKM Hartlepool ensured that festive cheer was felt by children in need in the local area this Christmas by supporting the Give A Little Gift appeal.

The North-East branch’s contributions helped make Christmas 2016 the most successful year the appeal has seen to date. An incredible effort saw the arrival of over 500 donated presents to be delivered to children in time for them to open on Christmas day.

The donations – including gifts of games, toys and teddies – stacked high in the MKM Hartlepool branch. Branch director Mick Sumpter commented: “I think this is a fantastic appeal, all of us here at MKM love doing it, we really feel that we are making a difference to lives of children in Hartlepool.

“Can I just say thank you to all those who donated, without your support this appeal wouldn’t be possible. Furthermore, thank you to all of the organisations who came and collected gifts, listening to your stories was fascinating, it’s heartbreaking to think that we have so many children in our town, that without your help may not have received anything this Christmas”.

A huge congratulations goes out to MKM Hartlepool for such a successful campaign for such a worthy cause!
