Who can believe we’re nearly in December! In the office we’re ready, the Christmas tree has been decorated and the lights are twinkling. To give a little back every year we take joy in helping charities and the local community.
For over 5 years now we have continued to support a local Bromsgrove based charity called The Basement Project. They are a fantastic group that support young people under 25 that are going through difficult times and/or financial hardship. Christmas can be a lovely time for some and not for others and to make this a little easier, The Basement Project put food parcels together to help through the festive period. We contacted them this year and asked them what they needed/wanted and we delivered. Hinton Group and individual employees contributed a large amount of Christmas biscuits, chocolates, and selection boxes that were gratefully received by the charity and we really hope goes towards making Christmas a special time.
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for the support in terms of Christmas goodies for our clients and those who are facing financial hardship over the festive period and beyond.
Kim and Amy called in today and the timing was perfect as we were in discussion around Christmas food parcels. Mostly staple goods so brilliant to have a touch of Christmas spirit thanks for the Hinton Group. Will put a much-needed smile on the faces of people in our local community.” Jerry Robinson, Chief Executive Officer
For the first time last year, we also took part in a brilliant scheme called Operation Christmas Child set up by registered charity Samaritan’s Purse. The charity ask for generously packed shoebox gifts to send to children in need around the world. This year Hinton Group took pleasure in organising the packing and wrapping of 13 gift boxes that were full to the brim with toys, school supplies, clothing, books and a message from us all. We hope all the shoeboxes that are opened this Christmas put a smile on the children’s faces.
From everyone at Hinton Group we wish you all a safe and happy lead up to Christmas.
