61 Years of Supporting Children in South Wales, The Mr X Appeal is running again this year, its 61st year. Due to Covid19 Restrictions we are coming up against many problems which we are doing our best to overcome. Some Childcare Agencies in the Swansea area are doing things differently and will not be participating this year as they are working from home and are unable to physically transfer the presents to their children. We have been assured these children will not go without. We will still be working with nearly 40 Childcare Agencies. Names are given to us from Child Support Agencies in the Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Bridgend, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Carmarthenshire, Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff areas.
We are hoping to run the Appeal as we have done for the last 60 years but realise any lockdown restrictions may prevent us from doing this. So we are asking for your help in this case. We will be giving out names in the usual way but if we find we are unable to operate we ask that you keep any present that you have bought for next year. Hopefully it won’t come to this. Also, if you usually help us out but feel you can’t this year due to staff working from home etc. please do not worry as we will ensure that no child on our lists goes without.
If you would like to help please contact The Mr X Team on any of the following numbers: 01792 863400, 01792 846271, 01792 523885, 07974 689383 or 07982 243402.
Facebook users could you please advise when asking for child’s name:-
- Preference for Girl or Boy and Age.
- The area you will be dropping off the gift eg Swansea, Neath, Llanelli, Bridgend etc.
- Due to isolation of gifts we will start picking up at the beginning of December to give us a chance to get the gifts to the children.
- Please do not request names under comments as they might get missed, please use main inbox.
