Newcastle United Players drop by to support Cash for Kids Christmas Appeal
For the past four years here at Quorum, we’ve been proud to support the Cash for Kids charity, you could say that it’s become something of a park Christmas tradition.
The Cash for Kids mission is simple: to raise money for local children and young people who in the local community who are disadvantaged or who simply need extra care and guidance.
The charity recognises that, at Christmas time, every local child should have something to wake up to on Christmas morning, so as the nights start drawing in, Quorum asks its tenants and the wider community to donate toys and gifts. These are then distributed to over 39,000 children in the North East. For many, it might be the only Christmas present they receive.
The collection of gifts is only one part of the support that the Park provides to the charity, they also provide a collection point and sorting space for the toys that are donated from across the region.
Debbie Craig, Cash for Kids’ Events and Projects Executive, said: “Without the support of Quorum Business Park, in terms of donations and the space that they provide, we simply would not be able to collect and distribute so many toys. The park’s dedication to helping Cash for Kids really does make a big difference to children’s lives in the North East.”
Laura Barber, Events & Sustainability Manager, here at Quorum said: “Cash for Kids is a fantastic charity, which does so much for children living in poverty in the North East. Quorum is proud to actively support such a good cause and hopes that its involvement can make local children’s Christmases a little bit happier.”
Last week Newcastle United Players, Steven Taylor and Jack Alnwick popped along to our Q2 building to support volunteers in the Q2 building.
