November's Donation

November is our birthday month so to celebrate we have made a double donation.

Our first donation will be paid to the family of Louise.  Louise was a bright young women who tragically and very suddenly lost her life a few weeks ago, the cause is yet to be known. Louise was known personally by staff in our Clacton on Sea office, who described her as a beautiful soul and who will be missed by all that were lucky enough to have met her.  Louise's family have limited funds and our donation will help to pay for a headstone.

Having been in contact with Louise's mother, I know how much she truly appreciates our support.   Whilst she endures this devastating time, she was overwhelmed by our generosity which I found and continue to find very humbling.  With the festive season on our doorstep this seems all the more poignant.

Essex Police Giving Tree
You may remember that last December we purchased £500 worth of toys and donated them to  'The Giving Tree' which is a scheme run by Essex Police.   The Giving Tree  distributes toys and gifts to children and young adults who are underprivileged and  wouldn't otherwise receive gifts.  This year we plan to split the toys between the Clacton-on-Sea and Colchester Giving Tree.
