Contributing to our 2015 gift collection campaign, Together at Christmas.
Last year’s Together at Christmas proved to be an immense success with 4000 gifts donated and wrapped to over 1,300 people supported by 24 charities based in the Bankside and Southwark area.
The College of Occupational Therapists was one of the 60 local businesses to host a Christmas box, collecting a variety of gifts from their workforce to be given to local charities for the homeless, vulnerably housed and elderly people. Each gift donated from COT truly made a real difference to the lives of those in the local Bankside area who may have otherwise not received a Christmas present.
