On Sunday, children across Britain will wake Christmas morning to colourful presents under the tree. But for many children and families this much-loved tradition is out of reach. That’s why Family Action, a UK charity that supports children and families, has an annual toy appeal—to provide some Christmas cheer to those in need. In 2015 they provided over 5,000 children with toys to open on Christmas with the help of individuals, community groups and businesses.
At Polecat, we love to spread Christmas cheer. So we heeded Family Action’s call at our recent staff holiday gathering. Rather than have the typical ‘Secret Santa’ gift exchange we asked our team to bring a toy or a monetary donation. Team members lovingly wrapped the gifts and delivered them to the local Family Action project to be delivered to children. We know it’s a small effort, but we’re happy to pitch in as part of our commitment to the communities we do business in. We look forward to making the toy appeal part of our annual holiday traditions at Polecat.
