Kids Company is on a mission to provide 4,500 Christmas gifts for the children and young people they support to make their Christmas a happy occasion. Many of these children would otherwise be alone or without food and presents if not for Kids Company. The festive season, far from being happy, for them is a sad time of shame, loneliness and hunger.
In this short, very moving video, Camila Batmanghelidjh, founder of Kids Company, explains how four thousand children will benefit from their Christmas day activities and why the Kids Company Christmas Day activities are so necessary.
The Castle is supporting Kids Company by donating Family Taster and Kids Fun climbing sessions. We hope that this small gift will make someone's Christmas truly memorable. If you would like to support Kids Company, please go to their website to see how you can donate, volunteer or support in a number of other ways.
