Public to decide which charities get Hills’ Christmas card cash

Three Wiltshire charities are in line to benefit from a Wiltshire company’s decision not to send Christmas cards this year – and members of the public are being invited to choose which the lucky charity will be.

Like many companies, recycling and building giant The Hills Group is forgoing Christmas cards in lieu of a donation to charity.

Each of the three nominated local charities will receive £150. But it is Hills’ customers who will decide which charity gets a further £150 bonus.

Customers can vote via Hills’ Facebook page, or by logging on to

The charities from which to choose are:

Threshold, an independent charity that works to positively tackle the issues and problems that arise from homelessness and focus on assisting people who are currently or threatened with becoming homeless.

Children’s unit, Great Western Hospital provides care for children up to the age of 18 years with medical, surgical, complex and chronic illnesses.

Wiltshire Sight exists to help those of all ages affected by sight loss in Wiltshire and Swindon; offering information, advice and guidance, giving people practical and emotional support to help them in their daily lives.
