Since 2007, the Big Wrap has provided Christmas presents to over 500 children and young people in the Vale of Glamorgan. This year, Cardiff City Football Club will be joining forces with the Big Wrap and will extend the reach to include children and young people aged 0-19, from across the region.
We are asking all supporters to play their part this Christmas and donate a present to the appeal.
We are looking for new gifts ranging from 0-19, which can be games and toys for the younger children and gift vouchers for the older ones.
The Peterborough United game on the 15th December is our special festive Ambassadors game and Father Christmas will be in store, so this is a perfect chance to drop your gifts off.
If you would like to make a donation to the Cardiff City FC Big Wrap this Christmas we will be accepting gifts from Saturday 1st of December. All gifts will be accepted from the main stadium store.
Our aim is to bring happiness this Christmas to 1,000 children who would go without this Christmas.
Working in partnership with local agencies, the Big Wrap is run by volunteers and relies entirely on donations from local organisations and members of the public. Presents will be given to children and young people identified by front line care professionals, including social workers, local charities and churches.
Susan Lloyd-Selby, the Big Wrap coordinator said “We are delighted to be running the Big Wrap 2012 in partnership with Cardiff City Football Club. Every present we receive will be given to a child or young person who might otherwise receive nothing or very little for Christmas. We would like to thank the team and its supporters in advance – with your help, we can make sure Christmas reaches even more children this year”.
Julian Jenkins, Cardiff City FC Marketing Director spoke of the good work the Big Wrap undertake and how we can all make a difference: “Christmas is a special time and we are excited to join up with the Big Wrap and hopefully bring lots of happiness to families and children who may wake up on Christmas morning with very little or nothing. I know our supporters and staff will get behind the appeal and if we could reach our target of 1000 presents that would be amazing.”
The Big Wrap is happy to receive gifts (all of which should be new and unwrapped) or financial donations.
