Action for Children are delighted to be Dobbies Christmas Charity Partner 2017 along with WellChild. The partnership aims to raise £60,000 for disadvantaged and seriously ill children in the UK.

34 Dobbies stores from Inverness in the North of Scotland to Ashford in the heart of Kent will be holding events to raise money for the two charities. As well as this, an exclusive range of British designed Christmas decorations have been launched with proceeds split between the charities. Each store will also host a Wish Tree where customers can purchase a Christmas bauble to place on the tree – all proceeds will go directly to the charities.

Lorrie Roberton, Chief Operating Officer for Dobbies, said: “One of our seasonal traditions at Dobbies is to choose a national charity to support. This year, we struggled to choose between two incredible organisations that work hard to make children’s lives better so we decided to support both. I personally am in awe of the work that WellChild and Action for Children do and I know that our customers will feel just as motivated and will be keen to raise as much money as they can.”

For most, Christmas is a wonderful time, but sadly for many children, young people and families, this is not the case. We hope that, with the aid of our customers and colleagues, we can help to make a difference.
