As you know, Springfords Employee Charity Committee likes to donate to local charities, nominated by members of staff. Last year West Lothian charity River Kids, was nominated by Julie Leckie (who volunteers as their Treasurer) and we were delighted to support them.
River Kids is a charity that runs events to raise funds to help local disadvantaged children. The charity has just celebrated its 7th birthday and is going from strength to strength.
Many events were run last year including a recent Christmas Party night and Breakfast With Santa, where children were joined by Santa to enjoy breakfast and receive a small present from him. In addition the charity also took part in the 30th year of the West Lothian Toy Appeal which has delivered toys to children who would otherwise receive nothing at Christmas. Specific fundraising events are planned to help this appeal continue to support children who desperately need to know that they have been good and Santa has put them on the ‘nice’ list.
The next major event planned is a golf day and River Kids are hoping that the 2013 event will be a celebrity/amateur event with teams of 3 being allocated a celebrity to play on their team, Fred McAuley has already agreed to take part.
