Co-op bring Christmas Cheer to our Drop in – 1st December 2011On the 1st of December a team from the Co-op Financial team arrived for a corporate volunteering day. They came in absolutely laden down with gifts, chocolates, food, cakes, clothing decorations and even a Christmas tree.
The team only had an hour before the drop-in opened for breakfast, so they set to work and quickly transformed the place with a tree and twinkling decorations. They also brought and prepared a fantastic cooked breakfast; some of the team helped to serve this or were happy to chat to the guys. There was a joyful atmosphere with people singing Christmas Carol's which gave rise to an impromptu dance as one or two as the homeless men and women encouraged one of the team to dance. Then last but not least it was on to our storage facility to help us organise our clothing and donations. Thank you team for an amazing day!
