This year we chose to support The Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity – fundraising throughout December, were we wore Christmas jumpers, held raffles and had cake sales.
Each year we buy Christmas cards and send them out to our clients, consultants and associates – we have always brought them from a charitable company – sometimes the local charity shop!
But this year our chosen charity had its own online shop – this meant we could not only fundraise for them, but also buy our cards and gifts through them too – knowing that 100% of the profits went directly back to the charity.
Some of our office staff – Kaidee Clark, Donna Clements and Kathy Clements, also took part in a 5k ‘Santa Dash’ – joined by around 3000 others dressed as Santa – this looked incredible! And was a really fun way of not only helping to raising the profile of such a fantastic charity but also bringing a huge sense of community spirit. Not forgetting, allowing us to set our own personal goals and gain a real sense of achievement!
Christmas time is about giving and sharing what we have with those less fortunate – and Charity is a great place to fulfill that!
Overall we raised £437.16 for G.O.S.H.
