Give a Gift this Christmas

Lloyd Blackpool BMW has had the privilege of working with Cash for Kids now for more than seven years. By participating in several events throughout each year and helping them raise the much-needed funds for children around us

From bike rides to jumping off planes, dressing up as superheroes and walking up the Big One in Blackpool our staff have always been heavily committed in supporting our children in Lancashire through Cash for Kids.

The most coveted time of the year for us is without a doubt the Christmas season working together with Cash for Kids and its toy appeal. For the past six years we have hosted an indoor Christmas market inviting local businesses, customers and friends with hundreds of pounds and presents being raised each year. The generosity and amicability of the community has been formidable.

This year we will have our traditional Santa’s sleigh and reindeers in our BMW showroom in Blackpool to be used as a drop-off point for all Christmas donations.

We are calling all our MINI enthusiasts, friends and supporters to join in our first MINI Christmas convoy which will take place on Saturday 14th December, setting off from our MINI Showroom in Blackpool and heading to Mission Christmas Headquarters in Preston.

Fancy joining our MINI convoy or donating some presents? We’re calling for everyone’s help, whether you own a business or just have a little teddy to donate. Bring it to us and we will make sure it gets put in the Santa Sleigh this Christmas.

With one in four children across the UK living in poverty, for many families, Christmas is simply a luxury they can’t afford.

All the money is raised locally and spent locally and goes to children and young people under 18 throughout the region, with mental, physical or sensory disabilities, with behavioural or psychological disorders, living in poverty or situations of deprivation, suffering through distress, abuse or neglect.
