For many people Christmas is about spending time with family and friends, indulgent food, exchanging cards & gifts, festive decorations and happy memories. In order to spread a little Christmas cheer and help people who are less fortunate than ourselves, ISI decided to give back this Christmas and support the NSPCC charity.
For those of you who don’t know NSPCC is the UK’s leading children’s charity fighting to end child abuse, they have been committed to this mission for over 100 years. Offering services such as assemblies in schools to strengthen awareness around abuse, telephone counselling and play therapy and supporting families through challenging times.
As an independent charity, which receives around 90% of its funding from supporters, they rely on the help of people to make sure they can keep every child who needs them safe.
Making a donation to NSPCC for their star badges and incorporating them into the design of our Christmas card meant that not only did hundreds of our clients and suppliers receive a little token of our appreciation, for their continuing business and support, but we were also able to give something back and help the charity and all the great work they do.
As well as donating the money for the badges we also held a festive day in the office in line with the charities ‘Get your sparkle on’ fundraising campaign. We exchanged secret Santa gifts, shared a huge buffet feast and everyone paid money to wear their Christmas jumpers and take part in a Christmas quiz. We really enjoyed the day and all proceeds where donated to NSPCC!
