At our annual Christmas conference in December the foundation asked all the gbp team to bring along donations of gifts and toys for children spending Christmas in Alder Hey Childrens Hospital and also for the children under the care of Manchester Childrens Services, for some of these children December 25th is no different from the other 364 days of the year.
We already knew that our teams are kind, caring and giving but we were overwhelmed by their generosity, we received over 250 gifts to be distributed between our two beneficiaries. The gbpfoundation also bought selection boxes and chocolate characters to go along with the gifts.
When we took our donations to the hospital and to Manchester they were delighted with our contribution and explained the difference these acts of kindness can make. Wendy met with the Director of the Alder Hey Fund raising charity and there are dates in the diary for further meetings to see what more we can do together.
The foundation can not thank our gbp staff for their continued support for our work and we look forward to making good things happen in the coming 12 months.
