Cintra Santa’s Helpers have been at it again!
Following on from their collection of advent calendars and selection boxes the kind-hearted folks at Cintra decided to take spreading Christmas cheer one step further by collecting toys and gifts to support the Metro Radio Cash for Kids Mission Christmas initiative.
Mission Christmas is an appeal designed to support the 1 in 3 children living in poverty in the region, who, without the help of generous folk like the staff at Cintra, would wake up without a present to open on Christmas Day. It is estimated that this affects a staggering 45,000 children in the North East. Thanks to the bulging sacks of gifts gathered at Cintra and by others around the region, we hope that that number will now be significantly less.
