KidsOut’s “Van-tastic” new addition!
We are happy to announce a new addition to the KidsOut team: our very own van!
With the generous support of a £12,000 donation from VINCI Engergies UK, KidsOut has been able to purchase the new vehicle to facilitate our mission to bring fun and happiness to children around the UK.
In particular, the KidsOut van will be used to help grow our Toy Box scheme. Started in 2008, Toy Box delivers a box of brand new toys and games to children who have been rehoused due to domestic violence. KidsOut have delivered more and more toys to disadvantaged children since the scheme’s creation, with 3,757 Toy Boxes being distributed in 2017; that’s 178% more than 2016!
As the scheme continues to grow our new van will be essential for transportation and coordination, as well as eliminating van-hire costs for other fundraising events and parties. With the new van we will reach more young people than ever before.
We would like to once again thank VINCI Energies for their substantial contribution to the work of KidsOut, along with Ian Parker for nominating us.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on the roads for the KidsOut van, hopefully rolling to a town near you soon!
