RU getting festive for charity
December 2017

In the run up to Christmas, the team at The RU Group have been “doing their bit” for 3 local charities.

On 8th December, we supported the GEM 106 Mission Christmas to help raise funds for disadvantaged children in the East Midlands.

Staff wore their Christmas jumpers or a Christmassy accessory in exchange for making a donation to the charity.  A few festive photos are below:

A total of £79 was raised which will go towards buying Christmas presents for children across the area who may not otherwise receive one.

Gifts will go to organisations including “Supporting Leicestershire Families” who work with vulnerable and troubled families across the county.  The children often feel isolated when they see everyone else getting a present.  Giving them a little something helps them feel loved.

In addition, instead of sending each other Christmas cards this year, staff at The RU Group brought in various items including food, clothing and toiletries to make up 3 hampers to send to two local charities.

The Canaan Trust are a charity based in Long Eaton who offer 24 hour support to homeless males who are often vulnerable, socially excluded and forgotten members of our society.

Emmanuel House based in the centre of Nottingham are a local charity supporting homeless, vulnerable or isolated adults in and around Nottingham.

A big thank you to the team for helping to spread a little Christmas joy.
