CFM Cash for Kids




Mission Christmas at Castlegate Surgery

This year we are making it our mission to support CFM- Cash for Kids with their Mission Christmas.

We understand times are hard for us all and for some Christmas is a luxury that they cannot afford, we are going to make all efforts to do our very best to help the local children this Christmas!

We are calling all Castlegate patients and staff to get involved with this very important mission.

Mission Christmas by Cash for Kids

Let's not allow a child in our area to go without a present on Christmas morning.

Our plan is to hold various activities around the surgery in the run up to the festive period.


Here's how you can help

A robin

Guess the name of the surgery Robin and you could win a Christmas hamper! £1 a guess and available from our Reception desk.


A pound with an unhappy face drawn on the front

This is a pound. He's a bit useless by himself. We think pounds are much better when we put them together with their friends! If everyone who visits the surgery today donates £1, when we put them all together we can make a big difference to the lives of the disabled, disadvantaged, and vulnerable children in Cumbria. If you would like to help us support CFM Cash for Kids please speak to a member of our team or click the link below.
