Walter the Wolf, the beloved mascot of Westmorland FA, is once again spreading holiday cheer with his annual Christmas Giving Tree campaign. This year, Walter is determined to ensure that every child in the community experiences the joy of Christmas morning.
The Christmas Giving Tree campaign is a simple yet heart warming initiative that allows individuals and businesses to donate gifts for children in need. Participants can donate £5 to the Giving Tree fund which will then be exchanged for a Christmas gift in partnership with Booths Supermarkets.
"We are so grateful for the generosity of our community in supporting this important initiative," said Walter the Wolf. "Every gift donated makes a world of difference to a child's Christmas."
Last year, the campaign collected over 130 gifts for children in the community. These gifts were donated via football clubs and schools to children nominated by them. This year, Walter hopes to surpass that number and ensure that every child has a gift to open on Christmas morning.
"No child should go without a gift on Christmas," said Walter. "That's why we're asking everyone to join us in making this holiday season special for all children."
Donations of £5 can be made by bank transfer to Westmorland County FA:
Cumberland Building Society
Sort Code: 16-52-21
Account Name: Westmorland County FA Limited
Please use the reference of Walter’s Giving Tree.
The campaign will run until Monday 11th December.
