Webhelp plays Santa for over 200 Falkirk children

News
18th December 2019

Kind-hearted employees in Falkirk got into the Christmas spirit for the children’s charity Barnardos, aiming to deliver a happy Christmas for over 200 local families in need.

Colleagues at Webhelp’s site at Larbert came together in support of the charity as part of the company’s vision to ‘Think Human.’ Barnardos was selected as they protect and support the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people – which was considered especially important at this time of year.

Employees wanted to have a direct impact in their community, so they worked with Barnardos to support a ‘Giving Tree’ toy drive, and special tags were placed on a Christmas tree, highlighting details of a child in need, so that the team could provide the perfect gift just for them.

As you can see from the attached pictures and video, the response was incredible – with over 200 gift packs gathered under the tree in Larbert. Webhelp as a company also contributed an additional £200, which will go to families needing extra support over the festive period.

The team at Barnardos were delighted with the effort, with Kelda Athey who arrived to take the donations saying:

“We came to pick up Christmas presents for the service, expecting to see a few black bags and instead we found presents for 200 kids in the Falkirk district.” She added: “This has really blown us away… and is going to change Christmas day for so many families this year!”

She also gave more information about the people helped by the scheme:

“Children range from birth up to young people at the age of 26, some are looked after, some are in their own properties, some are still with their parents, but they are in really difficult financial circumstances, and may not be used to getting a Christmas due to how much financial strain families are under now.”

And the season of giving didn’t stop there for this generous Falkirk bunch, who also raised over £400 for local food banks through raffles and charitable donations. Ryan McCabe, Operations Manager for the Larbert site, congratulated the employees, saying he was “extremely proud to be part of such a charitable and socially conscious team”, and praised the work of site Co-ordinator Rachael Harrison who was instrumental in making the project a success.
