Posted on: November 10th, 2021 by admin

We are looking for 120 very special Teesside children, who face a Christmas with nothing or have a life limiting illness or disability.

We are working closely with local companies and Smyths toys to give you a Christmas you deserve!

Each Sunday in December 5th, 12th and 19th, we’re giving a total of 120 children (40 per Sunday) £200 to spend in Smyths Toys in Stockton where they can fill up their own decorated trolley.

Upon leaving the store you will record a short video saying Thank You & Happy Christmas. We will collate these videos to play on Christmas Day.

If you know a genuine child who meets the Project’s criteria please nominate by filling in the online nomination form below.

The children chosen will have a Christmas list to Santa of gifts they would wish for, on arriving at Smyths each will have a personalised decorated trolley with a Xmas stocking. Inside will be a selection box and a Xmas card, inside the card will be a personalised message from Santa and a £200 gift voucher to purchase the toys they wanted from the Santa letter.

This will give each child a Christmas they won’t forget.

(Please don’t nominate any Children who will be receiving Christmas gifts, we want to help Children facing a Christmas with very little or nothing.)

      Lusso Send Teesside Child to Disneyland Paris.

      Posted on: May 4th, 2020 by admin

      Help team Lusso send Teesside children with life-limiting illnesses or disabilities on an all-expenses paid holiday of a lifetime to Disneyland Paris.

      Lusso’s founder proud Teessider Wayne Spriggs & his team will be virtually cycling, running & walking the distance from JFK airport in New York to Durham Tees Valley Airport.

      This means team Lusso will each have to cycle, run or walk 17.3km per day until the total of 5375km is complete within the month of May.

      The team of 13 strong employees of Lusso really wants to give local children & families something to look forward too.

      The Covid-19 pandemic has made everyday life so much different. We will be working alongside local charity the Teesside Family Foundation after the pandemic to make sure the Teesside children chosen, have a holiday of a lifetime.

      Please support this very hard, very tough challenge & let’s make dreams of Disney Land a reality.

      Thank you

      Wayne & The Team at Lusso Stone
