Christmas is a time for giving and sharing, and this year was like no other for the ER Team who again decided to put their hands into their own pockets to help to make a difference to those who need it the most.
After seeing an advert for the Samaritan Shoe Box Appeal when dropping her children off to nursery, our Recruitment Business Manager Maxine expressed her interest in supporting the charity to ensure fewer children are going without gifts at Christmas.
Recognised as a team with integrity and the ambition to #MakeADifference the entire ER Team were keen to get behind the initiative and provide beautiful gifts to children across the globe living in poverty and conflict.
What astounded us the most was the appreciation and gratitude we received when donating the present boxes. An idea so simple and inexpensive containing items in which most of us take for granted, yet were received with such pleasure and would brighten the Christmas of a young child.
Our boxes have been officially sent off and Samaritans Purse have provided us each with a link to where and whom our gifts are delivered to, which we look forward to sharing with you all in the New Year!
With one week left in the office until the Christmas break we are all looking forward to enjoying the festive season with family and friends, but we’ll be sure to take a moment out to reflect on the thankfulness of the Samaritans Purse and the life changing, positive difference they are making to so many young lives across the world.
