As 2018 draws to a close, we have been getting into the festive spirit!
Wearing our tasteful Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save the Children, https://christmasjumperday.org/ we ran a number of events throughout last week to donate money for this great cause:
Our usual festive bake off was hotly contested with a real variety of tasty treats to tickle the taste buds – homemade stollen, a tree tower of lemon biscuits, Cajun lamb tartlets, spicy salmon tarts, cinnamon bread pudding, and a chilli cheese snowman, to name a few. The winner was a festive little number which was wolfed down in a flash – stuffed turkey, brie and cranberry rolls.
Well done to all the fundraisers, who smashed last year’s efforts for such a good cause.
‘Save the Children’ delivers essential healthcare, education, protection and food to millions of children around the world who are missing out on the basics. A £2 donation could pay for the antibiotics to treat five children suffering from pneumonia. It’s not too late to donate this Christmas. Please visit: https://christmasjumperday.org/
As usual our team have surpassed themselves this year – In addition to raising money for ‘Save the Children,’ we also wanted to support the local community.
We got involved in Mission Christmas https://planetradio.co.uk/wave-105/charity/events/mission-christmas-wave/
Thousands of children are living in poverty across our area. For these families Christmas is a luxury they can’t afford. We bought Christmas presents for children and young people aged 0-18 years which then get distributed to disadvantaged local children to make their Christmas morning special.
In addition, a large box has been filled with a variety of food and goodies for the local food bank- to help those most in need over Christmas.
Thank you so much to all the staff who took part in our fundraising activities. You really have excelled yourselves again.
