Charity Donation Day – Colchester
A big thank-you to our friends and colleagues for their amazing response to our first ever Charity Donation Day at DCP’s Colchester offices on 30 November.
We were supporting the Christmas appeals of three local charities: the Colchester Food Bank, Homestart Colchester and the Colchester Night Shelter. Friends and colleagues had been invited to join us for some festive cheer and a chat and to bring along a donation for one of the charities; we were overwhelmed by the response!
Thanks to the huge generosity of those who came we were able to send some 56 kgs of festive fare to the Colchester Foodbank (a wealth of toys and games to Homestart Colchester and a pile of new bedding and laundry supplies to the Colchester Night Shelter.
The charities were absolutely thrilled with the donations, which will make such a difference to the individuals and families which they support.
