Hallam FM Mission Christmas Cash For Kids

Mission Christmas launches in November and we are partnering with Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids to ensure thousands of children wake up with gifts this year after the latest poverty figures revealed an increase in families across South Yorkshire who are struggling to afford Christmas this year.

A staggering 33,292* children in Sheffield are living in poverty, with the priority in December for many families ensuring food is kept on the table and the heating switched on instead of celebrating Christmas. Last year, over 24,000 children received gifts at Christmas, surpassing the previous year’s total by nearly twenty per cent valuing the campaign at over £1.2 million, making Mission Christmas the biggest gift appeal across South Yorkshire.

Xactium is proud to be one of the local organisations who will be fundraising and helping to distribute gifts to those that need it most.

The Great Xactium Bake Off

Being an organisation who loves all things cake we regularly host the ever popular Great Xactium Bake Off. Our most recent bake off was in aid of SOGB 2017.

This year's theme was around sporting and 1st place was awarded to James Tuck with his Olympic ring of homemade scones with processo jam!

All employees were invited to contribute a charitable donation in exchange for a slice of their favourite cake.

Fundraising Brings Music to Sri Lankan School

As a result of numerous fundraising activities including a Pampered Chef evening, Casual Fridays, Christmas Raffle, a Pool Tournament and many more, Xactium's donation has enabled the school to purchase musical instruments, costumes for band members and provide musical tuition.
 
The school, K/Doranegama Maha Vidyalaya, provides education for children and young adults from 5-18 years from deprived, rural areas with few resources available to them. Despite this, the school is thriving academically and has been recognised nationally for dance and the arts.
 
Ranga Medagoda, a Software Developer at Xactium visited the school in March 2014 and was invited to a special assembly at the school to present the instruments to the school.
