As 2021 draws to a close and Christmas approaches, we’re taking on the last of our five charity challenges for five years of Carnsight Communications. (Not sure what we’re talking about? Learn more). We couldn’t be happier with the charity we’ve chosen to support for our last challenge of the year!

We’re going Christmas shopping! But not for ourselves, of course. For the wonderful children supported by Family Action, and even more specifically Hackney Social Prescribing Service.

For many of us, Christmas is a magical time, however, for the families supported by Family Action, it can often cause added stress and difficulty. Financial pressures and the fallout from a challenging year mean many families are struggling.

Each year, Family Action receives requests from its services for toys that they can give to the families they support. In 2020 alone, Family Action distributed over 13,000 presents to over 11,000 children across the country. For many children, the present they receive from the Toy Appeal is the only one they will get at Christmas.

This year, Carnsight Communications will be supplying 20 toys to Hackney Social Prescribing Service. We can’t wait to pick out some extra fun bits and pieces for the fantastic children supported by Family Action.

We’ve been delighted to be able to support each of the five charities we selected this year and in many cases, it was simply the start of what we’re sure will be a much longer relationship. There are so many wonderful people out there doing truly amazing things and it’s been our pleasure to chip in and help out in any way we can.

We hope that sending out these Christmas gifts will help to put some smiles on some little faces and we’ve already had some great suggestions from Business Owner Jess’s children on what we could send!

A massive thank you to Family Action for the amazing work they’re doing, and to all of the charities we’ve supported this year. You are incredible.
