Children’s Society - Spring 2016

May 17, 2016

This year’s box donations totalled £513.96.  Although the amount is lower than our magnificent contributions over the previous five years, this is unsurprising as the list of box-holders is sadly decreasing, in line with a national trend.  In earlier years, despite fluctuations, I was counting the contents of approximately forty boxes whereas now we number less than 30 – but a very generous 30!   With this in mind, if anyone is interested in having a box at home or work to collect their loose change, please do contact me.

 

The Children’s Society is a national charity that runs local projects across England, helping children and young people when they are at their most vulnerable.  In the South & South West area alone the Society supported 27 projects and helped 12,590 children last year.

A final few words from Matthew Reed, Chief Executive:  ‘On behalf of the thousands of children whose lives have been transformed by our services, I would like to extend my warmest thanks to you for being a Box Holder.   Every penny you collect in your box really does make a difference, and enables us to be there for the young people who need us most.’

 

Thank you.
