Give a Little Love this Christmas

To coin a phrase from a rather well-known retailer, famous for their Christmas campaigns, we too thought we’d give a little love this Christmas.

A member of staff at our Howden site is collecting toys on behalf of the Hull Self Store Depot where her daughter works. Hull Self Store are collecting new toys as Christmas present donations on behalf of the NSPCC and the BioteCH4 team will be supporting this worthy cause.

The NSPCC will be donating toys to children who are in foster care, in children’s homes or between care and those who, during the recent difficult times with the impact of Covid-19, have had to rely on the support of local foodbanks.

We’re sharing some Christmas cheer and giving a little love this Christmas by asking our teams for support, by buying a small gift to give to a child who may otherwise go without this year.

It’s been a difficult year for many and we feel that the work the NSPCC are doing here to support the local community sits comfortably alongside the support we've shown our local foodbanks over the last six months.

Over the next couple of weeks, the BioteCH4 Christmas elves will be gathering gifts and donations from across the group, which will be taken to the ‘Christmas Grotto’ for sorting, wrapping and distribution across our region during December.

If you'd like to support this cause, or you’re local to the area and would like some more information please feel free to contact Colleen directly.
