WRC pledges to donate 10% of all skip hires this December to support CASH4KIDS Mission Christmas

Date Posted: 21 Nov, 2022

In an effort to ensure every child gets a present this Christmas, Renfrewshire-based recycler, WRC Recycling, has pledged to donate 10% of all skip hires this December in support of Cash4Kids Mission Christmas.

An annual appeal that sets out to bring Christmas to children living in poverty, Cash4Kids Mission Christmas is likely to receive record levels of requests this year as a result of the current economic climate pushing more families into a cost-of-living crisis. Last year, the appeal helped to give gifts to 288,715 disadvantaged children, with this year expected to exceed Cash4Kids 2021 figures.

WRC Managing Director, Robert Capper, said:

“The current state of the UK economy has resulted in an increased number of families across the country feeling social and economic hardship.

“We firmly believe that every child should feel excitement waking up on Christmas morning to presents and a hot meal, but sadly this is not a reality for so many children. This is the time of year that businesses need to step up and help make a difference to vulnerable families, and on behalf of the entire WRC team, we are delighted to be offering our support – this year above any other.

“The heart-warming work carried out by the team at Cash4Kids not only ensures vulnerable children get a present at Christmas but also helps to alleviate some of the financial pressures felt by families across the region at this time of year.

“This is our first time working in partnership with Clyde 1’s Mission Christmas, and we hope local businesses and community members can help us raise as much as we can by considering WRC Recycling for any skip hire requirements they may have throughout December.

“We are passionate about making this year’s campaign a huge success, and hope our contributions will help to spread some cheer to children across Glasgow and the West this festive period”

WRC Recycling is a family-run business that aims to support the Scottish Government’s plans to become a zero-waste economy by 2025. The Group currently employs around 80 staff and has ambitious growth plans heading into 2023.
