Doncaster Refurnish have joined forces with the Doncaster Safeguarding Children Board of Doncaster Council to put on a special Christmas event for local children called ‘The Spirit of Christmas’.

The event will take place on Monday 6th December at the Trades and Labour Club located within the Frenchgate Shopping Centre and it is anticipated that 120 Children will attend aged from 0 up to 10 along with their parents/guardians. Each child will get to meet Father Christmas, receive a gift, a food pack and participate in party games and activities. Refurnish staff will be dressed as Elves for the day and will be helping Father Christmas to give out presents

Refurnish are keen to promote the concept of corporate social responsibility within its own organisation and demonstrate that personal giving in aid of others can promote a feel good factor in the sense of self worth and satisfaction for those who engage.

The event has received overwhelming support from a host of agencies and individuals. Kind donations of presents have been received from the Frenchgate Centre, Health & Safety Publications, Dixons Auto Drain, Food Aware and staff from Doncaster CVS and the Coalfields Regeneration Trust.

Peter Davies, Mayor of Doncaster said ‘This venture has been supported and coordinated by the Doncaster Safeguarding Children Board who welcome charities such as Refurnish, providing much needed Christmas fun for Doncaster families. The team is responsible for ensuring that children in Doncaster receive the care and support they need.

Andy Simpson, Chief Executive of Refurnish said: ‘I’d like to thank all the local businesses that provided gifts. This year’s event has already attracted interest from people wishing to raise funds and sponsor gifts for next year’s event, which shows fantastic commitment and belief in what we are trying to achieve’.
