Samantha Tanner, Cash for Kids charity manager, said: “The Cash for Kids annual auction is always an exciting affair that has the potential to raise a lot of money to support disadvantaged children in your area. We have received many fantastic auction lots for this year’s auction, however in order to boost donations we are appealing to local businesses to show their support by donating money can’t buy items. ”
There are around 88,000* children in the south (SO, PO and BH postcodes) who do not have a hot meal on a daily basis, have no heating in their home and do not possess a full school uniform. There is a firm belief throughout the charity that no child should go without their basic needs being met. Cash for Kids is dedicated to encouraging the general wellbeing of children and adolescents as well as supporting children under the age of 18, who are disadvantaged financially, socially, emotionally or physically.
