Last year, the Community Development Team were able to deliver 1,177 bags of seasonal treats to underprivileged children, families, and community groups across the city and county through our #BagsOfHope Campaign.
We cannot thank our business members enough for your amazing contributions to this campaign that we run every year. We appreciate everyone's efforts, no matter how big or small, to making a positive difference to people's lives during the holiday period.
I cannot thank Francesca enough for the hard work and dedication that she puts into our #BagsOfHope Campaign. Not only does she contribute a great number of bags, but she ensures every single one is filled with items of a high value, which is very much appreciated by the children and families who receive them.Neetu Squire, Head of Community Development
