CFM Cash for Kids




Mission Christmas at Castlegate Surgery

In 2022 we made it our mission to support CFM - Cash for Kids with their Mission Christmas.

Times are hard for us all and for some Christmas is a luxury that they cannot afford, we have been making all efforts to do our very best to help the local children this Christmas!

Through the overwhelming support of our patients and staff we are delighted to have raised a huge £1000 and a big box of donated gifts and toys for the local children.

The charity were delighted to accept our donation and gifts that are heading off to Cash For Kids HQ ready for sorting and delivered in time for Christmas!
