Cash for Kids are a grant giving charity that supports individual children, groups and children's charities where children are sick, deprived and in need of extra support. Every penny raised within South Yorkshire stays in South Yorkshire.
Since 2014 Cash for Kids has supported 50 different causes, including children with Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Autism, Spina Bifida, Muscular Dystrophy, Visual Impairments, Hearing Impairments and those that have suffered from/witnessed abuse and neglect. They have also awarded money through their Grant Rounds for sensory rooms/equipment, family days out/activities, beds and bedding, School Clubs, Youth Groups and Primary Schools. Thanks to the support of businesses, schools and individuals in South Yorkshire, 2015 was their most successful year to date raising over £1,250,000. In 2015 the charity supported 91,482 children, an increase of over 46% from the number of children supported in 2014.
Cash for Kids is most well-known for Mission Christmas which is delivered every year over a five week period to ensure that no child wakes up to nothing on Christmas Morning. In 2015 the appeal supported 21,206 local children.
