Colin and Reece bringing happiness to children’s hospitals
JCI Bradford, Manchester, Reading, Sheffield and Southampton are supporting Colin and Reece’s this year.
Colin and his son Reece, 5 years old, are travelling the length and breadth of the UK (dressed as Santa) delivering presents to terminally ill children at Christmas between 12-24 December.
Reece has struggled with cancer for most of his life and this is his mission to bring happiness to kids up and down the country this year.
JCI is supporting them collecting gifts to be delivered to Children’s Hospitals around the country. If you want to donate a gift please contact the local chambers who are involved.
Let us know how your Christmas appeal projects are going!
Kay Matthews, Project Manager for JCI Doncaster’s Secret Santa appeal commented: “Helping the community is a central part of being a member of JCI UK. We try to provide projects for members which teach them management skills in a safe environment whilst also underlining our organisation’s beliefs about creating better societies through active participation.”
