We are proud to have been a part of the ‘Kids Out Giving Tree 2019’

Dear Giving Tree Participant,

Christmas 2019 was easily one of the best ever for the charity! The whole team at KidsOut were blown away by the fantastic response to the Giving Tree initiative with a record breaking 1,400 companies signing-up to the toy appeal – almost double the amount from 2018!
This overwhelming generosity meant KidsOut were able to distribute brand new toys to thousands of children in refuge over the Christmas period. No child should have to wake up on Christmas day without a present to unwrap and play with, and even receiving a simple present such as a cuddly toy, book, or board game will have made such a difference to these children and their families.
Alongside the contribution of tens of thousands of toys, an incredible £40,000 was raised solely through Giving Tree monetary donations – mostly via the Gold Text Tags!

SIP wish you all a very Happy Christmas and successful New Year

As has become our usual practice, we prefer to make a contribution to charity rather than sending
Christmas cards and gifts, so for 2019 we have again signed up to the ‘Giving Tree’ for the KidsOut Charity and purchased Christmas gifts for local disadvantaged children.
