PM+M, the chartered accountancy, business advisory and financial planning group, has just launched its annual Christmas Present Appeal and is asking clients, contacts, friends and the local community to donate gifts to help vulnerable families and children in the Blackburn, Bury and Burnley areas.
This is the 13th year the firm has run the appeal which aims to help make the festive season into something very special for people who are unlikely to receive a present on Christmas Day. Last year hundreds of gifts were donated and distributed to Children Services in Blackburn, Burnley and Bury
PM+M is asking that gifts should be new, unopened and around the value of £10; be for children and teenagers of any age or gender; be unwrapped but should not contain confectionery or alcohol.
Gift drop offs can be made at either of PM+M’s main offices (Blackburn: New Century House, Greenbank Technology Park, Challenge Way, BB1 5QB; or Bury: First Floor, Sandringham House, Hollins Brook Park, Pilsworth Road, BL9 8RN) between 8:45am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday, by Monday 11th December.
PM+M has also put together an Amazon wishlist which can be used to purchase a gift that will then be delivered direct to one of the offices.
Helen Clayton, managing partner at PM+M, said: “There are hundreds of families across Blackburn, Bury and Burnley who are facing a tough Christmas. The cost of living crisis has affected so many people, so we hope this appeal plays a small part in bringing some much needed joy and creating some smiles.”
