Our Mazda dealership will turn its Leeds showroom into a gift drop-off point over the Christmas period to help collect presents and raise donations for the Leeds Children’s Hospital.
From Friday 1 December to Thursday 15 December, the JCT600 showroom on Ring Road in Lower Wortley will transform into a festive wonderland, where customers and members of the public can drop off presents and gifts for children who find themselves in the Leeds Children’s Hospital over the festive period.
The types of gifts that can be donated include puzzles, books, DVD’s & CD’s, toiletry sets, washable toys, selection boxes and non-chocolate sweet items (for patients who are not allowed to eat chocolate). For the younger children at the hospital, gifts can include interactive toys, rattles, snuggle blankets, baby toys and educational toys. Further gift ideas include computer consoles and games, art and craft items and washable toy cars.
Neil Pearson, Dealer Principal at JCT600 Leeds, said, “As Christmas is the perfect time for giving, there’s no better feeling than to give a gift to a child in need. I’m extremely proud that the Mazda team at JCT600, our customers and members of the public will help to spread the joy of Christmas to children at Leeds Children’s Hospital. We challenge you to come to our festive showroom with gifts or donations, and fill up our Mazda CX-5 sleigh. Once filled, Father Christmas will deliver the presents using the Mazda CX-5 to the children in hospital with the help of his little elves!”
Sharon Evans, from the Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust, said, “JCT600’s Christmas Gift Appeal for the Leeds Children’s Hospital is a wonderful thing to do for our young patients who will spend the festive period in hospital. We treat patients from new born babies and young children right up to 17 year-old teenagers. We have more than 20 children’s wards and with the help from JCT600 Mazda and all the kind gifts from the public, we can bring some Christmas cheer and festive spirit to everyone on the wards this year.”
The Christmas Gift drop-off point at JCT600 Mazda will be open from 1 December to 15 December. The donations will be delivered by the Christmas team from JCT600 to the Leeds Children’s Hospital on Friday 16 December between 10am and 2pm and distributed across the children’s wards and departments.
