One in four children are living in poverty this December in the UK. You might be surprised to know that the definition of child poverty is living in a house with no central heating and going to bed at night without a hot meal.
Many of these children across the country will also go without even one small gift this Christmas. Closer to home, in 2018 in West Yorkshire, 27,215 gifts were distributed to disadvantaged children. Mission Christmas work closely with social workers, head teachers and the emergency services to nominate families in crisis to be supported by the appeal.
SBG are proud to be supporting Mission Christmas again in 2019 and we are asking all staff to donate boxes of toys.
