A time for reflection

As the year draws to a close and the festive period begins, it’s a time for reflection. There is, without doubt, a growing level of uncertainty and concern over the challenges that are being faced as a result of the economic climate. Whilst we all consider what that means for ourselves and our families, it’s also an opportunity to think of those who are less fortunate.

With this in mind, we’ve chosen to do something different this Christmas. Rather than identifying one charity, we’ve asked our colleagues to each choose a cause that’s close to their heart, so that we can make a £100 donation to each one.

The team have each submitted some fantastic suggestions, with some emotional reasons, so why not take the time to read one or two to see where their donation is going. Hopefully, this will also encourage others to make a donation, if they’re in a fortunate position to do so.
