During the run-up to Christmas many companies take part in a yearly tradition of Secret Santa. Axis Group decided to try something a little different this year and instead of buying gifts for each other we decided to help the less fortunate by donating gifts to a local hospital/hospice for sick children.
The idea is that everyone who wishes to participate can donate a gift, up to the value of £10.00, taking into consideration different age groups and wards and conditions including Neonatal Care/Cancer/Blood Disorders and Burns Units.
The gifts were dropped off on the 21st December at Chelsea Children's Hospital Charity based at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, by our HR Director, Naomi Austen; HR Advisor, Amy Hewer and Recruitment Manager, Neil Minter and were happily received. Given the success, Axis is looking forward to donating again next year!
"On behalf of the children and their families in the Paediatric Unit, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your kind donation of gifts for the children in hospital this Christmas.
It has been a joy to see the looks of surprise and delight as children have received their gifts. Families have been so touched by your generosity. Thank you for making it possible for children to forget where they are and enjoy this festive time." Rachel Fitzpatrick, Hospital Play Team Manager.
