Mattel is spreading the Christmas spirit with a substantial £12,000 donation to a local charity as part of its continued charity work.

The company’s charitable arm – the Mattel’s Children Foundation – has provided funds for The Me2 Club – a charity that helps children and young people with special needs to participate in mainstream activities by providing trained volunteers to offer one on one support.

The donation will be used to run weekend away trips for children and volunteers and forms of part Mattel’s long-standing philanthropic programme which has seen millions of pounds donated to thousands of charities across the world in the last 30 years.

In 2009, the Mattel UK office has raised over £26,000 which will be divided between The Me2 Club and a further two of the company’s chosen charities Thames Valley Adventure Playground and Daisy’s Dream.

Additionally, Mattel UK employees regularly give up their time to support several charitable initiatives which include the Special Olympics.

Mattel UK senior vice president and general manager David Allmark commented: "As the largest toy manufacturer in the world, we believe it is important to lead the way in enriching the lives of children and importantly making a difference, whether that be through the design and manufacture of our products or through the important ‘giving back’ programme of activities. We are pleased to be able to make this significant donation to the Me2 Club, we know it will be invested well and will make a meaningful difference to so many children."
