Christmas presents

Staysure staff have dug deep to donate presents to children spending Christmas in hospital. Teams from Customer Services, Quality Assurance and Academy Support decided to raise funds for the Northamptonshire based charity Chelsea’s Angels after they launched their Christmas Eve Box appeal.

As part of the appeal, people are encouraged to buy gifts and wrap them up for children who have been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Staff used the money raised to make 20 Christmas boxes that children will be able to open on Christmas Eve.

Michelle, a spokeswoman for Chelsea’s Angels, which is based in Irthlingborough, told Staysure: “Thank you so much for the lovely boxes. We are so very grateful for your kindness, the thought that has gone into the boxes and how beautifully they have been presented.

“I was really amazed with what I collected yesterday, it nearly brought me to tears. These will be great and will make lots of poorly children smile.

The charity helps children with Neuroblastoma and rare cancers by providing financial assistance and respite breaks away for families, as well as medical equipment.

“Thank you so much to all your colleagues for your lovely, kind and beautiful donations, lots of smiles here!”

Chelsea’s Angels was started after a couple’s daughter called Chelsea lost her fight against Neuroblastoma in 2009 at the age of three. Her parents promised her they would help other children with the disease.
