Bristol Under Privileged Children’s Charity
Every child has the right to ENJOY their childhood, and this is why The Bristol Under Privileged Children’s Charity was created in the 1970’s Our aim is to raise as much money as possible for as long as possible to put back into and enrich the lives of children in a less fortunate position than ourselves.
Whatever their need, disability or situation we want to help improve their lives. The Bristol Under Privileged Children’s Charity has no share capital and no paid officials so every last penny raised by the charity and its supporters is spent helping Bristol children who reside within a twenty-five mile radius of the city centre. Funds are raised through donations, functions and subscriptions and are then applied to grants, items, services or facilities that help to reduce the need, hardship or distress of these children.
Centonex helps the BUPCC by providing all of its design and marketing as well as helping to organise various annual events including the Christmas Luncheon and next year a Fire Walk all to help raise money to support our local under privilged children.
Bristol Lord Mayors Appeal
The Lord Mayors Appeal originated in the 1920’s when an illuminated tram toured the City accompanied by a number of collectors. No money is given out, all assistance is by way of vouchers, exchangeable in various stores throughout the City for food and clothing.
The Appeal has helped some 2,000 – 3,000 local children per year, at a cost of approximately £40,000 per year. This appeal really does make a difference to some of the poorest families in Bristol at Christmas, making festivities a little more than they might otherwise have been.
