Cash for Kids is a grant giving charity and supports individual children, groups and children's charities where children are sick, deprived and in need of extra support. Every penny raised stays in South Yorkshire.

Cash for Kids is most well-known for Mission Christmas which is delivered every year to ensure that no child wakes up to nothing on Christmas Morning. In 2015 the appeal supported 21,206 local children.

This year we are striving to raise even more money so Cash for Kids can help even more local children and causes. We are looking for companies and individuals to support us during 2016 and help us make a significant difference to South Yorkshire's children who need it most.

Gunnar, a big, avuncular, smiling bear of a man, was on hand to discuss The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. David, an amiable hippy with wild hair and a big grin, spoke about Last House on the Left.
