Novus Give a Gift Appeal spreads Christmas cheer
We’ve been getting into the festive spirit during December by helping our local communities. From decorating to donations, the season of goodwill is in full swing in our offices up and down the country!
This is the 5th year we have held a coordinated national charitable Christmas campaign asking all our employees to get involved. This campaign is called the ‘Novus Give a Gift at Christmas Appeal’ and involves employees from each of our area offices donating presents or fundraising, and then donating these gifts to charitable and good causes in their communities.
The kitchens and bathrooms team in Llay, Wrexham opened their doors to children from the local area letting them get creative by designing and making their own Christmas decorations. The team later handed out mince pies and chocolates to residents and groups in the local area, ensuring that nobody was left out of the festivities.
Novus Southampton has also been getting crafty this Christmas by redecorating a vulnerable Newbury teenager’s living room and donating arts and crafts materials to a vulnerable adult shelter. The donations didn’t stop there for the Southampton branch, with an array of Christmas gifts contributed to a Basingstoke homeless single mothers’ shelter.
