A staggering one in three children are classed as living in poverty and the prospect of purchasing Christmas presents can be daunting or simply unachievable for families in need. The Mission Christmas campaign aims to provide every disadvantaged local child with a present to open on Christmas morning, allowing them to still believe in the magic of Christmas.

Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy are now a registered drop off point for Metro Radios Mission Christmas and we welcome staff, students, parents and the wider community to get involved.

To take part, just follow these simple steps…

  • Hit the shops and pick up a fantastic present suitable for children aged 0-18 years.
  • Drop your gift off at Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy reception – there’s no need for wrapping! We’ll make sure it gets delivered in time for Christmas morning.

Enjoy Christmas knowing that you have made a real difference in a child life.

Thanks and Merry Christmas,

Mrs Walsh
