Blind Auction in aid of the Santa Appeal

The RCT Santa Appeal has been given a beautiful ‘welsh heritage design’ blanket which we are auctioning to raise funds to buy presents for children in Rhondda Cynon Taf. The annual Appeal ensures no child misses out at Christmas.

Over the past few years, kind-hearted local residents, businesses and organisations have donated thousands of presents to children who, otherwise, may not have had a gift to open on Christmas morning.

All the monies raised from the auction will go towards buying present for children in Rhondda Cynon Taf who have been identified by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council social workers as a child who may not have had a Christmas experience familiar to so many of us.


Information about the blanket:

The double blanket was made from over £80.00 worth of wool and took over 6 months to make.

The blanket is unique, made with incredible amounts of love, and all the proceeds raised will go toward helping children within Rhondda Cynon Taf have a Christmas they may not otherwise be afforded.

The overwhelming kindness and generosity of the people of Rhondda Cynon Taf is shown year on year, from those who buy presents for the Santa Appeal to those who fundraise and raise awareness - you all help to make a difference.
