Operation Christmas Child

13th November 2015

After watching a video of the joy that the Christmas boxes bring to children, the manager of our Road Traffic Accident department, Lorna Wilson, decided to rally the troops and suggested the idea to her teams. “It’s a great Christmas project to do something good for children less fortunate than ourselves and encourage teamwork. Whilst creating the Christmas boxes, we’ve all been reminded how lucky we are too”.

The project is run by Samaritan’s Purse, and aims to help less fortunate children at Christmas time, giving them something to enjoy on Christmas morning. The boxes are filled with gifts for the children, such as toys, dolls, stuffed animals, games, skipping ropes and more. They also contain practical items that the children need including school supplies and hygiene products.

Over the last month, our staff have been picking up extra toys for children when out shopping, bringing in extra rolls of wrapping paper and donating gifts for the boxes. In addition to the donations from staff, Fletchers have also donated œ3 per box to cover the cost of postage, in addition to school supplies donated by Penkeths, such as pens, pencils, writing pads and more to fill the boxes.

With all of the generous donations, we have been able to fill and wrap a total of 40 boxes for ‘Operation Christmas Child’. The Christmas boxes will be distributed around the world and given to children between 2-14 years old in order to make a difference to their Christmas.
