Supporting Charity Christmas Gift Collection for Vulnerable Children & Young People
This Christmas the Baker Leasing Community Programme has chosen to support Bucks County Council in their campaign to collect Christmas presents for the vulnerable children and young people in Buckinghamshire. This is a cause we supported last year and are delighted to be involved once again.
The collection involves donating and collecting donations of gifts suitable for boys and girls and young adults. The presents do not need to be wrapped as they are all sorted and allocated before being wrapped and delivered to the appropriate recipient in time for Christmas.
Here is the information from the press launch for the appeal: -
Christmas present appeal for vulnerable local children is launched
The County Council has today launched its annual Christmas present appeal to help Buckinghamshire’s vulnerable children and young people.
The annual appeal, now in its fifth year, sees County Council employees and county councillors donate Christmas presents throughout November and December for disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people across the county. The presents will be handed over to children and young people by members of the council’s Children’s Services teams in time for Christmas.
Tolis Vouyioukas, Executive Director for Children’s Services, said: “Our employees are fantastic, caring people and for the last few years they’ve really committed to supporting our appeal by donating many hundreds, if not thousands, of presents.
“We are thrilled to be running the collection again this year as we know how much all our staff want to help make Christmas that little bit better for children who otherwise might not receive much. I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to every member of staff who brings in a present; it will make a real and tangible difference to the disadvantaged families we work with.
“Supporting us with the appeal again this year are a number of local residents, community organisations and businesses who together provide a lot of support, for which we are very grateful.”
As a family run business this cause is close to our hearts. At this time of year, it is great to be able to give back to our local community and appreciate how fortunate we are.
If you or your business would like to donate to this campaign then please email Anne Baker, Operations Director at Baker Leasing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how to proceed. Thank you in advance for any support you can offer.
