Please help our local bikers to collect as many presents as possible for children and parents who find themselves in our local Refuges this Christmas.
In 2016 250 presents were placed under the Christmas tree in the Museum by 60 bikers – many of whom donned Christmas costumes over their leathers! In total 321 presents were donated and each and every one was distributed in time for Christmas!
Some of the children receiving the presents have had to be snatched away to refuges in the middle of the night often leaving everything behind, and these places are pretty basic.
Please could you help us by donating a present for either a baby to teens, boy or girl; toys, games, useful items for new Mums, Dads, all new and gift wrapped, ready to go and marked up for a boy/girl, baby/teen, Mum/Dad, to help us deliver the right gift. Presents can be dropped off at the Museum from any time from now. Thank you.
Details to be published in the next two months but if you are interested please contact Viv on firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01425 616644
