As has become a festive tradition for the Recruitment Solutions (NW) office, we were once again very proud to lend our support to the Sedulo Christmas Toy Appeal.
The Appeal, which has been running since 2012, provides bespoke Santa sacks full of gifts to children living in poverty who, under their normal circumstances, will wake up on Christmas Day to find out Santa hasn’t been to visit. The first Christmas Toy Appeal provided around 45 presents to 15 children in Manchester, and this grown over the years to 2023’s achievement of providing 1,249 children across the UK with 17,000 presents, as well as a Christmas Dinner for all of their families.
The Appeal works with local charities, schools and community organisations, and through this access we’ve been able to target our support to children living in poverty in Rochdale, with 20 children living in our immediate community now receiving Christmas presents thanks to the efforts of our team.
Here are a few photos of our team buying and wrapping presents for the 20 children based on their interests, all of which are now on their way to sit underneath trees until the big day arrives.
