They are asking people in Dumfries and Galloway to host a Kidsmas Party at home, school, work or with local community groups to raise money for disadvantaged children and families. And the charity has put together a free Kidsmas Party Pack, which includes games, a quiz and lots more fun fundraising ideas to help make the gathering a memorable one.
Supporters are also encouraged to set up a Build your own Kidsmas Snowman online fundraising page. They can ask people to donate by throwing a ‘donation snowball’. The more snowballs are thrown, the bigger the snowman gets.
Barnardo’s Scotland director Martin Crewe said: “For many people Christmas is a time for family, fun and presents, but for vulnerable children across Scotland this time of year is just as challenging as any other. I encourage everyone to get into the Kidsmas spirit this year by hosting a Kidsmas Party. Not only will you have fun, but you’ll also help make sure more vulnerable children are happy, safe and cared for this Christmas.
