This Christmas, instead of sending Christmas cards, Farrat have decided to give it’s staff the opportunity to donate £100 each to charity as an extra special seasons greetings!
Employees each gave their £100 to 1 of 5 charities, including; NSPCC, Shelter, G-Force, Cancer Research UK and Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.
Each of the five charities were shortlisted from a pool of nominations submitted by everyone at Farrat, resulting in over £3,000 being donated across both local and national organisations that provide support, information and services to vulnerable children and adults across the UK.
Since the Christmas donations were sent just days ago, Farrat have already received messages of thanks and surprise from the recipient charities, with one local charity (G-Force – a community charity in Altrincham where Farrat is based) even turning up to the Farrat HQ with some Christmas treats for the team to show their appreciation.
Tina from G-Force (2nd on right), commented how shocked they were to receive a donation from a local company and how important it is to them that the local community continue to work together to provide support services to children and young adults.
“As a community focussed charity, it really means a lot to us to receive support from such a local business – especially at Christmas. We can’t thank Farrat enough and hope to work with you next year on local fundraising initiatives”.
Farrat are delighted to have spread a little joy this Christmas!
