Dewsbury West Scouts are long term supporters of Yorkshire Children’s Trust and every year they take their Santa Sleigh around the Dewsbury and Mirfield area to spread some Christmas cheer and raise essential funds for local charities such as Yorkshire Children’s Trust. This annual tradition was much welcomed by locals after the pandemic, making this the most successful year, collecting a truly magnificent £2,000 for the charity.

We cannot thank our friends at the scouts enough, this years total received today, brings up a combined total of a staggering £4750.00 raised over four Santa Sleigh’s. Just like all of the money raised by our supporters, 100% of these funds will be used to support local beneficiaries through our four themes of support.

Here at Yorkshire Children’s Trust, we rely heavily on the support of local people and organisations to provide our essential support. The charity doesn’t receive any lottery, NHS or central government funding, so every donation makes a real difference to how many families we can support each year.
