The Spirit of ChristmasArticle
Stage One are pleased to support our friends at The Spirit of Christmas once again during the festive period.
A Yorkshire-based charity, they support families throughout the year, at what can be a very stressful and challenging time for many. Their aim is simple, they seek to make Christmas joyful for all.
Their activities include a toy bank, Santa’s grotto, and children’s parties. Last year our workshops introduced a scheme for staff members to buy material off-cuts, and the funds raised from these purchases were used to buy toys for the charity’s toy bank.
This was such a successful scheme that we did it again this year and we’re thrilled to have surpassed the previous total. We have also provided the charity with a new Santa’s grotto and a stage for their Christmas parties, with several members of staff using their volunteer day and their personal time to make and install them.
The Spirit of Christmas is run by a team of dedicated volunteers, and since their start in 2009 they have catered for over 6,600 children and families at their Christmas parties. We are delighted to help them spread Christmas cheer to those who might otherwise have been without. And we’re proud of the effort our team has given to help make this happen.
“We would like to thank Will and Adam from Stage One Creative Services Ltd who came along yesterday with a large donation of toys for our charity. […] As a very small charity we are grateful for the support we receive from individuals and organisations that help us to provide for 1600-2000 children through the projects that we run.”The Spirit of Christmas
