21/12/2021Christmas For Colada Posted By : Ian/ 0 comments / Under : Colada News As the year comes to a close, we’re winding down for the Christmas period and finishing off some fantastic projects for our clients. Our long standing customers will know that we absolutely love to send out Christmas Cards which we really enjoy handwriting to everybody. This year however we’ve decided to do something a little different. Instead of sending out Christmas Cards during COVID-19, we’ve decided to make a charitable donation to the Telford Crisis Support team to help local families have a Christmas meal. The team at Telford Crisis Support, working in partnership with Telford & Wrekin Council, do so much great work within our local community from food banks, school uniform and baby clothing initiatives. “Within Telford Crisis Network there is a wealth of experience and understanding of the complex needs of individuals and families in acute financial crisis. Network agencies already provide a range of established and respected services including emergency food, emergency shelter, temporary accommodation and advice and support to resolve financial crises.” “Examples of current Network members include Telford & The Wrekin CAB, Maninplace, the KIP project, YMCA, British Red Cross, Stay, Telford & Wrekin Council, Wrekin Housing Trust, Lyreco, Telford College, Dawley Christian Centre, Telford Christian Council, Madeley Parish Council, Stirchley & Brookside Parish Council, Bournville Village Trust, Sanctuary Housing and Bromford Housing.” We have worked on many projects over the years with organisations locally who also support this initiative and we thought it would be a great gesture to give back at this time. We absolutely love working in the culinary and hospitality sectors as food is one of our great passions outside of work. From working within lots of communities around the country and in fact the world, we have noticed the tough times that are upon people during the pandemic and financial hardship. This year in particular we have really wanted to make a difference in any way possible. We feel blessed to have had the support of the government, local council and of course ongoing support and custom from our clients that have made this donation possible, so a big thank you from Colada! We hope that you agree this is a fantastic cause. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to catching up with you all in 2022.
