MKM Building Supplies donated six bags of toys and games to the Mission Christmas campaign, managed by the children’s charity, Cash for Kids. The charity seeks to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people across the country, providing vital support to children who have been affected by poverty, illness, or neglect.
As a long-time supporter of the charity, MKM’s donations ensure vulnerable children nationwide will wake up to a present on Christmas morning. For the last six years Chelsie Oliffe, purchase ledger clerk at MKM, has coordinated staff donations. Chelsie initially gathered donations from the business’ finance team and delivered them herself, but then invited the rest of MKM’s central support team to bring in gifts. Chelsie is also supported by Remi Rooks and Tracy Broderick, the shopper in charge of buying the toys, games, and toiletries. This year, MKMs Hull branch assisted the team when donations topped the £2000 mark and had to be delivered in a van.
Kate Tinsley, CEO at MKM, said: “Cash for Kids is a charity that is close to all of our hearts here at MKM. The work they do is vital all year round, but particularly at Christmas when some children and young people face going without. It means the world to us to be able to support them during the festive period, and we hope our donations put some smiles on children’s faces on Christmas Day.”
