Ilkley estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley is launching an appeal to the local community for donations of Christmas gifts for children.


After collecting presents last year for the Pulse 1 Mission Christmas, Cash For Kids campaign, Dacre, Son & Hartley's 125-strong team will be collecting and donating new and unwrapped gifts, so that more disadvantaged children can enjoy the magic of Christmas and have a present to open on Christmas Day.


Each Christmas Cash For Kids collects and distributes thousands of presents for children living in poverty, who would otherwise not receive a single present on Christmas Day. Last year 16,656 children in West and North Yorkshire woke up to a gift from Cash For Kids.


Gifts can be dropped off at 1-5 The Grove, Ilkley, and at any of Dacre, Son & Hartley's other 18 West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire offices until 10th December 2021.


Jenni Howell, from Dacre, Son & Hartley, said: "We will be promoting the campaign via posters in our office windows, on our website and social media platforms. We have a huge footprint across Yorkshire with a fabulous team who are all keen to support this amazing cause. We all understand what a special time Christmas is, especially for children, and the pandemic has caused added even more pressure than ever before for families living in poverty."


Alex Ryan, from Dacre, Son & Hartley added: "The gifts can be for all age groups, from babies to 18-year-olds, so everyone can enjoy the magic of Christmas. Gifts need to be new and unwrapped, but everything is welcome from baby clothes and toys to toiletries and even gift vouchers for older ones. Donations can be dropped off in any of our offices until the 10th December 2021."
