BIG WRAP 2014: HELPING CHRISTMAS REACH CHILDREN IN SOUTH WALES
Club News1st December
Cardiff City Football Club are delighted to be working with The Big Wrap for a third successive year, aiming to make this year better than ever.
The Big Wrap provides gifts to disadvantaged children and young people (0-19) in South Wales and the Valleys.
Last year, thanks to the generous support of Cardiff City fans, squad members and staff, over 500 children were supported. 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.
THIS CHRISTMAS WE ARE ASKING ALL CONNECTED TO THE CLUB TO PLAY THEIR PART AGAIN AND DONATE A PRESENT TO THE APPEAL.
THE BIG WRAP IS GRATEFUL TO RECEIVE TOYS (WHICH SHOULD BE NEW AND UNWRAPPED) AND GIFT TOKENS OR FINANCIAL DONATIONS.
This year, we will be collecting donations from 24th November until 13th December. Fans will be able to drop off their presents at the following participating stores:
- City Superstore – Cardiff City Stadium
- City Superstore – St David’s Centre
Susan Lloyd-Selby, The Big Wrap coordinator said “We are delighted to be running the Big Wrap in partnership with Cardiff City Football Club again this year. 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.”
The upcoming home match against Rotherham Utd on December 6th gives City fans the perfect chance of dropping off gifts. The gifts will then be wrapped and distributed to children in South Wales who would not usually receive Christmas presents.
