Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston is helping a national charity prove that money does grow on trees.
NYAS is a national children’s charity, headquartered in Birkenhead, which provides a range of advocacy services to children and young people in care and supports thousands each year when decisions are being made which affect their lives. The NYAS Helpline lies at the heart of the charity and has been described as a ‘lifeline’ by the thousands of children who benefit from the service every year.
Throughout December NYAS will be distributing individual NYAS Christmas trees to businesses and supporters. The tree is 16 inches tall, free standing and contains seventy two holes for baubles – or in this case one pound coins! Hopefully businesses will think of innovative ways in which to fill the trees!
“I am delighted to support the NYAS Christmas Appeal 2016 which will raise valuable funds for the Helpline and will help NYAS to support thousands of vulnerable children over the Christmas period.
“I am very aware of the issues which affect children and young people in care and those NYAS support will be facing difficult circumstances.
“I therefore urge people to support this worthwhile campaign by displaying their Christmas tree in their place of work, their home, place of worship, local gym, hotel reception or in their shops and restaurants and ask friends and colleagues to donate £1 to the campaign.
“I hope the local community will join NYAS in proving that money really can grow on trees. For more information visit www.nyas.net”
