Edwards & Co. is involved in a range of CSR activities throughout the year. In addition to our chosen ‘Charity partner of the Year’, we take part in a number of initiatives for national and international charities.
Come the 1st November, the wind gets colder and the frosts roll in. At this time of year, Christmas jingles also start appearing on TV.
Yet rather than groan about the season of goodwill, Edwards & Co. is channelling that energy. We want to make Christmas a little more special for some disadvantaged children in some of the world’s poorest areas.
Employees from the firm have signed up to ‘Operation Christmas Child’ – an appeal run by the charity Samaritan’s Purse. As one of the world’s largest children’s Christmas appeals, it organises over 1 million shoeboxes packed full of toys and gifts to be sent to children in Africa, Central Asia and Eastern Europe.
The opportunity to directly impact the life of disadvantaged children overseas is one way that the Edwards & Co. team can give back.
Everyone on the team has been pitching in – wrapping, packing and shopping to make a difference to the lives of children overseas.
