Tis the season of goodwill, and this festive season Jess donned her Santa hat to volunteer at a local Southampton charity to ensure disadvantaged families receive a Christmas gift this year.
Joining the team of staff and other volunteers (socially distanced of course…) at SCRATCH charity, our Head of Client Services, Jess helped with packaging up collection of gifts including books, cuddly toys, craft activities and games and toys for children from newborn to teens, who had been referred to the charity.
Jess says “After such a difficult year for most people, I wanted to give back and help out where I could. When I heard about SCRATCH, and having two young children myself, I just had to get involved in their Christmas Complete project. The thought of any child waking up without a gift this Christmas was heartbreaking – I really enjoyed volunteering at this wonderful charity and hope to help out more in the future”
