Donate a gift and help to make Christmas morning special for a disadvantaged child

(8 November 2019)

Cash for Kids’ ‘Mission Christmas’ appeal aims to raise money and donations for disadvantaged children who are at risk of not receiving a gift on Christmas Day. The appeal will launch on Monday 11 November and the Careers & Enterprise Centre is a registered collection point for Durham University. You are invited to donate new, unwrapped gifts of any value which would be suitable for children and young people aged 0-18 years. The deadline for donations is 5pm on Wednesday 11 December. 

The Careers Centre, Palatine Centre and wider University collected over 270 gifts for the appeal last year – far more than we’ve collected in previous years and we’d like to hit this target again!

Full information about the appeal can be found online  or contact Laura Smith in Careers & Enterprise on extension 41440 or by emailing
