A team from Commercial is supporting local charity, Caring for Communities and People [CCP], by taking part in its annual Christmas Gift Wrapping Service. This takes place in the Regent Arcade in Cheltenham and raises vital funds for Hamper Scamper. Hamper Scamper provides seasonal food parcels and children's gifts to those in need.
CCP supports young people and provides them with crisis accommodation and the tools to help them with all aspects of their lives, including health and wellbeing, learning and achievement, personal resilience and economic stability. CCP also runs other homeless prevention projects.
On 16th and 20th December volunteers from Commercial are spending three hours each at the Gift Wrap Station, wrapping presents of all shapes and sizes as a donation to the CCP appeal.
Katie Dainty from CCP said, “this service is the main fundraising element for Hamper Scamper, and every penny we make counts. This helps us to provide food hampers and children’s gifts to those who are isolated or on the brink of homelessness, and those struggling to afford food and heating alongside the expectations of the festive season.
“We really appreciate the support from Commercial, which is one of the local businesses that take part every year.”
