The festive season is in full swing and once again Wynyard Park is supporting local charities at a time people can find it difficult to feed their families or purchase gifts for their children.
Last year, thanks to your generosity, Wynyard Park donated more than 160kg of food to Hartlepool Food Bank. This equated to almost 400 meals and we are once again supporting this fantastic charity.
This year we’re also supporting TFM’s Mission Christmas. The aim of the project is to allow thousands of less fortunate children to still believe in the magic of Christmas by waking up to a gift on Christmas morning.
Below is a list of items that you can donate to support both organisations. The smallest of donation could help make a big difference.
Your donations can be made by Monday, December 17 at the Developments by Joseph Homes Sales Suite, Musgrave Garden Lane, Wynyard Park, between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday or between 11am and 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Alternatively donations can be left with a member of the concierge team at the main Wynyard Park Welcome Lodge.
On behalf of everyone that will benefit from this appeal we thank you for any contributions. We wish you all a warm and restful Christmas.
