Christmas is a time for family, coming together and enjoying quality time with each other.
Speaking as a parent, Christmas to me is all about making sure my children have a Christmas to remember. The thought of them missing out, or not having the sort of Christmas they wish for is – quite frankly something I’d really not want to think about.
Having to spend Christmas in hospital is something that –touch wood, none of my family have ever had to experience, but there are plenty of people who have to. Now, it’s bad enough having to endure that as an adult – but being a child, stuck in a hospital bed, rather than at home over Christmas must be really tough.
This year Cartmel Young farmers Club are looking to bring smiles to the faces of youngsters at Furness General by delivering presents in a really unique way.
Channelling their inner Santa - they will push a sledge containing gifts from Flookburgh Square to the Children’s Ward at Furness General (a distance of around 20 miles) on Saturday December 17th.
It’s a really great idea, and they’re looking for people to make donations to be able to give the children a real boost on the run up to Christmas.
If you want to contribute then you can donate an unwrapped gift (suitable for a child) or a present in a box or gift bag at the following locations: Premier in Flookburgh, Armer John Deere in Greenodd and the NFU Mutual in Ulverston.
