Mr X Appeals to Admiral
Staff at local employer Admiral have donated over 1,480 Christmas presents to disadvantaged children in the Swansea area, through the Mr X Appeal.
This number is the highest ever donation from Admiral to the appeal and sees staff from all over the business taking part, including hundreds of presents donated from staff in Swansea, Cardiff and Newport.
The Mr X Appeal collects gifts for disadvantaged children to provide them with a present to open on Christmas day. Signing their cards “With love from Father Christmas”, each staff member who donates a gift, is given the first name, gender and age of a child who would otherwise go without a Christmas present. There is no minimum or maximum spend and staff members are very charitable, in fact many donated several gifts. The presents donated include pyjamas, books, toys and even a bike.
The Mr X Appeal in Admiral is co-ordinated by Donna Macdonald in the New Business department, Swansea. Donna has been promoting the Mr X Appeal in Admiral for two years and before this her Mother, Angela, had run it in the office for fifteen years.
Donna said, “My colleagues have been amazing and contribute to Mr X with kindness and generosity every Christmas. The number of gifts donated grows each year and I’m so proud to see everyone support a great cause. I hope we can bring a smile to children’s faces this Christmas and many more to come”.
