Maghull Kickboxing and Martial Arts Academy Annual Christmas Gift Appeal
I started this idea back in 2019 and after hearing of people losing their jobs and suffering hardship and heartbreak, I put the appeal out in social media and was truly amazed at the local communities generosity,
with over 200 gifts being donated.
This is how you can help, I asked people to donate wrapped up presents for the following age groups.
Boys Age 3 to 5
Girls Age 3 to 5
Boys Age 6-10
Girls Age 6 to 10
As we all know this has been the most horrendous year due to Corona Virus,, people have lost their jobs, homes, been extremely ill and some sadly passed away.
This is the third year I have ran this campaign and WOW was it life changing, along with kind helpers, were so overwhelmed and life changing with the generosity of local people from our local area. I’m not ashamed to say that twice whilst delivering presents to families, I broke down in tears. It brought it home to me that there are people out there who are in a bad, bad way. This year can only be worse.
If you know of anyone in the following categories or anyone that we can bring a smile to, or could do with a little festive pick me up and maybe help them get through these horrendous times. Please nominate them, or if you would like to help , click on the links below. We will do our best !!
