Body sprays, chocolate and dodgy CDs… we don’t know about you but over the last few years our Secret Santa attempts at Parasol HQ have been a little… drab.
That’s why this year, our sales and marketing department decided to put our £10 gift budget to better use and donate it to a worthy cause.
Keeping 'charity begins at home' in mind, we chose to give our donation to a worthwhile cause local to our Warrington HQ. Over £320 was raised across the team and this, along with additional contributions of food and supplies collected across the department, was donated to Warrington Open Doors at Christmas (WODAC).
WODAC is a charity run by volunteers and offers refreshments, meals, warm clothing, toiletries and friendship over the Christmas period to vulnerable people in Warrington.
Andy Willis, a representative from WODAC, visited our Warrington office to be presented with our donation and food supplies. He gave a heart-warming speech about how our money will be put to good use – WODAC only needs £3500 to open their doors over the Christmas period, and so our donation goes a long way to help them achieve their target.
