Contributing The Gift of Christmas for Charity
All throughout the year we actively give to charitable causes. This time last year we were gearing up for the Glasgow Santa Dash in aid of the Beatson Cancer Charity and we proudly raised over £1000.00!
This year we’re delighted to support one of our long standing clients The Wise Group.
We have pledged to donate £5 for every £100 of our Second Hand Furniture Sales to their Christmas collection. This extra contribution will enable them to spread even more Christmas joy.
The idea behind their ‘Gift of Christmas’ drive is to give to those facing a Christmas without a dinner, something most of us take for granted these days. Our MD, Kara Cunningham, was touched by a social media post she seen, which prompted her to contact The Wise Group and offer a helping hand.
They are also running a gift drive. Staff can nominate individuals or families who may not receive any gifts this year – from families who are living in temporary accommodation, facing fuel poverty, to people their community justice team has supported . A gift tag is placed on the tree detailing who the person or family is, what age they are and what they like, their hobbies and interests. These gift tags then form a profile of the person we’re helping, which can be used to buy them a gift and their children.
So next time you’re in the shops and picking up some advent calendars, selection boxes or any other ‘Christmassy’ thing…. spare a thought for those less fortunate and get in touch to see how you can help us help them and make a child smile brightly at Christmas this year!
