Birchall Blackburn solicitors, which has offices across the North West, is doing its part to make Christmas a time of joy for disadvantaged children in the county.
Four of the law firm’s offices have signed up to become a collection point for the Rock FM Mission Christmas, Cash for Kids initiative.
The aim of the charity is to provide some Christmas cheer for thousands of children across Lancashire living in poverty by asking for donations of new toys and gifts.
They can be dropped off at Birchall Blackburn’s offices on Hough Lane, Leyland, Avenham Street, Preston, Liverpool Road, Penwortham and Cambridge Road in Southport.
Cathy MacCracken, partner at Birchall Blackburn said, “There are many children in Lancashire who will wake up on Christmas morning without anything to open because they are living in poverty or other difficult situations and we wanted to help make this festive season a special one for them.
“We would encourage anyone who feels that they may be able to help to call in to their local Birchall Blackburn office with gifts, to make it a Christmas to remember for these unfortunate young people.”
The deadline for dropping off any donations is December 16, and although not official drop-off points, the Chorley office on St Thomas’s Road and Morecambe office on Victoria Street are also receiving donations.
