Centre MK make sleigh bells ring

Milton Keynes Shopping Centre put smiles on thousands of children’s faces this Christmas. Centre MK have donated 9,000 toys to the charity KidsOut which will not only help children this Christmas but throughout the next coming year also, and will of course help Santa with his load too!

KidsOut was the chosen charity because of the great work providing disadvantaged children with fun experiences, days out, toy boxes and support. Many of these children are the most vulnerable in the UK, who have been affected by domestic abuse.

The toys will go to many children this year and next year, some of which are being supported by a great partnership between KidsOut and MK-ACT; a domestic violence charity for Milton Keynes. Without this generosity, KidsOut could not offer the support that they currently do.

KidsOut want to give a huge thank you to Centre MK for their kindness this Christmas; it will truly make a difference. Due to increasing costs, we are calling on local groups, schools, businesses and individuals to please think about those children in the run up to Christmas. KidsOut really need your help.

Many of the children arrive at domestic violence refuges across the UK with just a few clothes in a bag and nothing else. The gift of a toy helps them remember that they are loved and cared for and that they are still just a child.

This is where you can help change lives and above all give those who have lived in fear and violence in our country a sense of hope. If you want to join the KidsOut Toy Box appeal please contact info@kidsout.org.uk or call 01525 385252 to arrange a donation.
