Solihull Editorial 12th Apr, 2023   0

A CHILDREN’S charity gave out over 800 Easter Eggs and 800 toys to 11 organisations that include hospitals, hospices, SEN schools and Ronald McDonald House.

Matt’s Mission Children’s Charity also took a coach full of children and families to Blackpool to see an Easter Theatre Show on Easter Sunday.

Matt Denning, who is usually seen dressed as Captain America outside of Bernardo’s in Solihull, has been delivering the sweet treats to children throughout the borough.

He said: “We had support from Solihull College as well as local residents, we also had support from Morrisons Sheldon, Hickory’s Smokehouse Castle Bromwich, Capelli’s Hair Salon Solihull, Joseph Chamberlain College, Ukckma, Macc Care, Civicare.

“The charity would like to thank them all.

“Sky TV sponsored and also gave us four drivers to carry out the deliveries a long side myself.

“The organisation’s would like to say thank you to everyone who supported.”

Matt started up the charity in 2011 after his Grandad was diagnosed with cancer he raised funds for the hospital and met a sick child and he continues to support sick children and those with complex needs.

Over the years Matt has raised more than £300,000 and has used this money taking children to Lapland at Christmas times, Disney Land and he has bought a caravan holiday home in Skegness for families to go for respite.

Matt has raised funds by taking on mountain climbs, marathons and sky dives.
