This Christmas, Aitchisons colleagues across Berkhamsted, St Albans & South Herts Offices, have been fundraising for charities that play a key role in their local community.
Aitchisons are proud corporate supporters of the Hospice of St Francis, a relationship formed nearly 30 years ago. In 2018, Aitchisons formed a partnership with the Hospice with the ‘Precious Home’ campaign, combining the wonderful work that the Hospice does to care and support people living with life-limiting illnesses with an established residential agency whose staff truly value the needs of their customers. In December, the team were able to donate £2,000 as part of the campaign.
DENS, Action Against Homelessness in Dacorum, provide support for people in the community facing or dealing with homelessness. They have a fantastic night shelter, hostel, foodbank, day centres and rehabilitation services. Aitchisons have been a close partner of DENS for nearly ten years, previously hosting Afternoon Tea Concerts, supporting the renowned ‘Hemel Hillbuster’ and other fundraisers.
This year, the team collected a reverse advent calendar for the charity. Each day an item was added to the donation box, such as toiletries, chocolates, tinned foods and of course a Christmas pudding or two! The team put in a fantastic effort and managed to collect over 110kg of items.
“We are blessed to have strong relationships with our corporate partners.” Commented Andy Young, Head of Residential. “It is lovely also to see our colleagues getting so heavily involved behind these festive fundraisers and actively playing a part in our local communities”.
