This year, across our ten studios, we have elected to donate our annual Christmas party budget to charities that are significant to our colleagues.
Rather than collectively supporting a single charity, our teams have each decided to contribute to smaller regional charities alongside national causes, with over 20 charities receiving a donation.
Our Leeds studio is supporting the Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice and Child Autism UK. Our team in Manchester has donated to One Manchester and Coffee 4 Craig which helps Manchester’s homeless community by providing a hot drink and a meal for every £5 donated.
In London and Glasgow, our studios have donated to The Trussell Trust food banks with our Glasgow team additionally supporting several local charities including the Glasgow branch of Samaritans. Darlington has chosen to support the Salvation Army Children’s Christmas Present Fund and the Mayor of Darlington’s Charitable Trust.
In Canterbury we are supporting the Rising Sun Domestic Violence & Abuse Service, whilst in Stourbridge we have donated to several charities including Acorns Children’s Hospice and Mind Dudley.
Warwick will support Myton Hospice and Change Grow Live, a national charity that takes a holistic approach to supporting people managing addiction. And finally, in Birmingham the chosen charities include Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Shelter, Mind, Acorns Children’s Hospice and St Basils.
