Staff at TR’s West Midlands location show their continued support and donate to multiple charities

21.01.2022

 

Staff at TR’s West Midlands location continue to show support to those in need. Each year they donate to a local charity instead of sending Christmas cards to each other.

For 2021, the team decided to split the donations between two charities they have previously supported, the Black Country Foodbank and The Salvation Army.
 
The team raised an impressive total of £430.00, £210.00 was donated to The Salvation Army and £220.00 to the local Black Country Foodbank, who issue food vouchers to local organisations that encounter people in hardship.
 
 

Thank you to Jayne for making the fundraising event a huge success. Thank you to everyone who donated. Everyone should be really proud of themselves for making a difference in the local community.

Lieut-Colonel Dean Pallant, The Salvation Army comments: "I'm writing to say a truly sincere and very warm 'Thank you' to you. You are a shining star! Our Christmas fundraising is so important and when we start our appeal, I always offer a prayer and express a hope that it will deliver the funds we need to continue our work. That's why I'm so grateful that you made a donation. The Salvation Army is busy all year round, but the winter and Christmas season is a time when we really do step up our caring work.
 
We're here for families who have so little, to help make sure they feel supported and that children have a small present to open on Christmas Day. We're here for older people; without us, many would have little or no company at this time of year. We're here for people who are homeless or battling addictions or recovering from forms of slavery-these people need us more than ever at Christmas time.
 
Christmas is a time when we think of others. Your donation will help us do more than think, it will help us deliver care, the kindness and the practical support that is at the very heart of The Salvation Army."
