The Zoe’s Place Christmas Appeal has ended for another year, and what a year it has been.
MSS and Zoe’s Place have been more than overwhelmed with your generosity this year. The final total of gifts bought from our Amazon wish list is 136, with a donation of £217.80 raised from our signed Middlesbrough shirt raffle.
We cannot thank you enough for your contribution and support throughout this year’s Appeal.
Sue Fox, from Zoe’s Place, says she cannot thank MSS Members enough.
“This is the 6th year running now that we have been lucky enough to be supported by the Middlesbrough Supporters South forum and their generosity never ceases to amaze us. There are some wonderful charities on Teesside so to be chosen once again means a lot to us.”
“The toys and gifts we have received mean we can make sure all our children have an extra gift at Christmas. A huge thank you to everyone involved in the organising as well as everyone who has taken the time to choose and donate a gift.”
“On behalf of all the children, families and staff at Zoe’s Place we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
Kate Grace, who managed the MSS Christmas Appeal this year, says the success of the 2016 Appeal has been unbelievable.
“The Christmas Appeal is something we are really proud of and, on behalf of the Committee, I’d like to thank all of the MSS Members who donated gifts and contributed to the raffle before the Hull City match.”
“To nearly double the amount donated in 2015 has been fantastic and we hope we’ve helped make Christmas special for children and families at Zoe’s Place. The charity holds a special place in our hearts and we look forward to running more charity events with MSS throughout 2017.”
Earlier this week we sent Committee Member, Leila Abidi, and David Grace (Kate’s brother – pictured) to meet Sue, Rachel and the children at Zoe’s Place.
Once again, a huge well done and thank you for your contributions, we cannot express how much this will make the children smile extra bright this Christmas.
From all of the Committee here at Middlesbrough Supporters South we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
