Barnardo’s Xmas toy appeal

Cotton Court Business Centre is inviting members of the Lancashire business community to join them for their 8th annual Christmas party on 9 November.

The party will signify the launch of the Christmas toy appeal in aid of Barnardo’s. The Cotton Court coordinated campaign collects and distributes gifts to young people in need across the county.

Members of the local business community are invited to join Cotton Court, Blog Preston and an array of local businesses & organisations from across Lancashire for the event at Glovers Bar in Preston, at 7pm on Friday 9 November until late.

There will be a complimentary bar, food and live music; with the opportunity to network and most importantly, support a great cause ahead of the festive season.

The event is free, with guests being asked to bring a gift suitable for a young person between the ages of 0 – 25. It is requested that presents remain unwrapped, and there is a particular need for gifts for teenagers.

Cotton Court Marketing Director Jack Barron, said: “This is the sixth year we’ve held this appeal and the response we receive from the local business community is outstanding. Our goal this year is to provide at least one present to each of the 400 young people that Barnardo’s support across the county.

“Traditionally we’ve struggled to provide for the older end of the age spectrum, the teenagers and above, so this year we’re giving that an extra push.

“This party is a great opportunity for members of the local business community to get together, but most importantly to support a great cause at a time of year that can be quite distressing for some of these young people being supported by Barnardo’s.”
