This year many of our restaurants will be supporting Christmas appeals by becoming gift donation stations for needy children this festive season.
Pesto at the Dibbinsdale Inn, Bromborough, and Pesto Widnes will be supporting Radio City’s campaign.
The radio station’s appeal hopes to help give thousands of local children across Merseyside, Cheshire and the Wirral a happy and memorable Christmas by asking ‘secret santas’ from across the region to donate a gift to a child in need at a local drop off point like Pesto.
Pesto at the Dicconson Arms, Appley Bridge, will be a donation station for Rock FM. This is the second year that Pesto has been a donation station for Mission Christmas which last year saw the overall appeal raise over £654,000 in gifts and cash supporting over 12,500 local children.
Pesto Cabbage Hall, near Tarporley, and Pesto at the Trafford Centre are both acting as a donation points for the Lalley Toy Appeal. The Toy Appeal receives requests for support every year from schools, adoption centres, social workers and more. Each child the appeal helps will receive a bundle of around eight presents including a main present, books and board game, meaning the charity needs to receive over 15,000 donations to achieve their goal.
New and unwrapped gifts are needed for children and young people aged from 0-18 years old – with main presents for children aged 8-11 years old and older teens particularly wanted. Books, board games, play items, teddy bears, arts and crafts gifts, selection boxes and teddies are all welcome donations as well as age appropriate main presents or toys.
Pesto at the Sutton Coldfield is also looking for donations of toys or gifts that can be given to child patients at Good Hope Hospital, in particular the Child Assessment Unit and Children’s A and E department, festive period.
If you would like to help out and donate an item please feel free to drop off your gift (please note it must be new and unwrapped) at any of the restaurants mentioned above anytime throughout the week when the restaurant is open.
Thank you for your support.
