GC Live to back Mission Christmas Campaign through major event portfolio…

Cash for Kids East Lothian’s Charity Manager, Vic Hendry:

‘We are so grateful for the support we are receiving through the Wondrous Woods and Starry Nights illuminated trail experiences. The money that’s donated through the ticket sales will buy presents that will bring joy to many local children, allowing them to experience the magic of Christmas, as every child should.”

25p per every full-price ticket sold for Wondrous Woods and Starry Nights will be donated to Cash for Kids to support local children across Scotland’s central belt this Christmas.

GC Live, a new major events organiser has announced that they will be donating 25p from every full-price ticket sold for their two largest seasonal events to Cash for Kids Mission Christmas.

Now the largest gift appeal in the UK, Mission Christmas helps ensure every child wakes up to a visit from Santa as presents are delivered to hundreds of thousands of children who would otherwise go without.

Geoff Crow, Director of GC Live:

“We are delighted to support Cash for Kids with their Mission Christmas campaign. With an expected audience of over 60,000 visitors across both events, we are looking forward to being able to donate a sizable sum to the charity which will help support those kids who need presents the most at Christmas time.”

Wondrous Woods, at Gosford House near Edinburgh and Starry Nights at Dean Castle near Kilmarnock, will be delivered by technical and event management partners, 21CC Group and will offer magical illuminated experiences for families across Scotland.

It’s incredibly important to us to support the local community and the work we do is a lot more than just building high-quality homes.
