Christmas charity round-up
This year, a few members of the Bristol team took time away from the office to help at the Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) Christmas party at the Charlton Farm Hospice, on the outskirts of Bristol. It was a lovely event with lots of different activities which the children enjoyed immensely.
Instead of sending our clients Christmas cards this year, we made a donation to CHSW to help them continue their great work providing care and assistance to the families of children with life limiting conditions.
In additional to financial support, we bought a selection of small gifts which were handed to the children by Father Christmas at the Christmas party. It is great to see first-hand what the difference that these donations make.
Volunteers at the CHSW party included (from left to right) India, Vicky, Stuart and Sara.
Through the Wells Dementia Action Alliance (WDAA), donations were made to local Charities “Heads Up” and the “Lawrence Centre” towards their Christmas Parties which brought much cheer to their clients living with dementia.
Plans are also underway to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the WDAA during Dementia Action Week between 11th and 17th May 2020, when there will be activities for all throughout the week to help raise awareness and fund raise as there is so much more that we can do to help those living with dementia in our community.
Guests and clients and the Mayor of Wells share a seasonal cheer at Heads Up’s Christmas party.
