Specsavers Inverurie will play its part in Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas, acting as a local toy drop-off point for the charity.

Committed to helping tackle child poverty across Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire, Specsavers has joined forces with ‘Mission Christmas’ as part of the Cash for Kids gift appeal to provide presents for disadvantaged children on Christmas Day.

As poverty rises, Cash for Kids and Specsavers is encouraging the public to purchase an extra toy or gift this festive season and donate to those less fortunate, through their Christmas drop off points located in the Station Road store.

The Mission Christmas appeal will run until Friday, December 18, with all new, unwrapped gifts being collected and distributed to children in time for Christmas Day.

Michael Higgins, store director of Specsavers in Inverurie said: ‘We are proud to support the appeal which helps make Christmas special for underprivileged children who would otherwise be waking up with no gift on Christmas morning.

“We really hope that more children than ever can open a present on Christmas Day.”

New, unwrapped gifts suitable for those aged 0-18 can be dropped off at the store until December 16.
