We are delighted to announce we have donated £3000 towards gifts for children in need this Christmas. The donation was made to the Salvation Army Christmas Toy Appeal to buy gifts for children who would otherwise find no presents this Christmas Day morning. An abundance of toys were purchased by the Salvation Army in Newquay and a team of volunteers spent several days organising toys and packing them in gift bags, ready to be delivered ahead of Christmas.
Aspects Holidays holiday co-ordinator Jackie Hoskens-Johns, Finance Administrator Rhea Millard, Communications Manager Gemma Taylor and SEO and Content Specialist Rosita Bunce were amongst the volunteers who helped to pack toys for the children. Rhea says of the experience “Helping out at the Salvation Army was an eye-opening experience, it is amazing how much they help those in need, and it makes you realise how lucky we really are to have them in our local communities. Seeing the number of people who use the charity was inspiring, it was great to be able to help out”.
It is the second year we have been able to support the Christmas Toy Appeal, which brings some Christmas cheer to children in the local area.
Chair of the Charity Council at Aspects Holidays, Gemma Taylor said the following: “It has been wonderful to be able to help the Salvation Army with their toy appeal again this year. We are thrilled we were able to help so many families within the local community. We do hope it will bring a little festive joy!”.
