CrossFit Teesside’s Christmas Charity Appeal 2015
Christmas for most people is a fun time spent with family and friends but not everyone is so lucky. Not everyone gets to spend it in a safe environment. Not everyone gets to open a present on Christmas Day.
Harbour is an organisation that provides purpose built emergency accommodation for women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse. Additionally they support female and male victims of abuse in the community through outreach services as well as providing therapeutic support to children in the community.
With a small donation from each of our members we are hoping to make a BIG difference for the children who will be spending Christmas in Harbour accommodation. We are asking you to buy an extra present whilst Christmas shopping so we can donate them to Harbour.
We’re looking for new toys and games suitable for children aged 0-18 years (leaning more towards 8-18 years). There will be a big Christmas box in the gym very shortly, please leave your gift in there. ***Please do not wrap the presents***
The gifts will then be collected by Harbour on the 21st December and they will then ensure that every child in their care will have something to open on Christmas morning.
We’d really, really, really appreciate your support with this and it will be awesome
