Cash for Kids: Mission Christmas

This year English Heritage are supporting Hallam FM-Cash for Kids ‘Mission Christmas’ campaign. The mission is to ensure that no child in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire goes without a gift this Christmas. We're providing drop off points at Bolsover Castle, Brodsworth Hall and Gardens and Conisbrough Castle. If you would like to, you can support the campaign by donating a present. Pop your gift, new and unwrapped, into the collection point and Hallam FM will wrap and distribute the gifts to children in need.
