Staff and students from both campuses of HSDC have been collecting gifts for Wave 105’s Mission Christmas appeal – and collectively they have beat last year’s total!
Last year saw 104 gifts donated for the initiative and amazingly the entire college pulled together to collect 172 presents in this year’s appeal.
Wave 105’s Cash for Kids launched ‘Mission Christmas’ to help the 88,635 children living in poverty across our area. By donating these presents we are ensuring that every child has a happy Christmas.
HSDC support staff organised the collection and Tara Kiany said: “We are ecstatic that we have smashed last year’s target which is what we wanted to do.
“This initiative makes a huge difference to children in our local area.
“This is the first year students have also been involved in the appeal, so a huge thank you for their generosity as well.”
