Christmas in July
Here at MCFT corporate social responsibility is something we place a lot of value upon. We are proud to have a 12-month programme of local and national charities we support.
Back in April we donated £305 to Sebastian’s Action Trust, who provide rest bite breaks for seriously ill children and their families. In February we were invited to have a tour of the site in Crowthorne and see the amazing space they have created there to help families spend time together whilst keeping the children safe and entertained.
Having seen what a worthy cause it was, we jumped at the opportunity to support them further by hosting a ‘Christmas in July’ event. For many of the families Sebastian’s Action Trust support, Christmas is a time of sadness rather than joy – their beloved child has passed away, or is too sick to enjoy this wonderful time. For this reason, they like to bring a bit of Christmas magic and sparkle to the children earlier than usual by holding a special Christmas party in July.
On Friday 20th July we will getting the Xmas tree out, having a buffet lunch and putting on our Xmas jumpers for a photo opportunity!
The MCFT team will be bringing in Christmas goodies for a shared buffet and donating cash or gifts that will be taken to Sebastian’s Action Trust. They will distribute them to seriously ill children who very sadly won’t make it to see Christmas this December but will, thanks to the efforts of everybody involved, get to have a very special early Christmas.
