BDB at Christmas

Here at BDB, we are strong believers that there is no greater gift than giving, and there is no better time to do so than at this time of year.

An Alternative Advent Calendar

Rather than munching on a chocolate each morning, we have been building a reverse advent calendar, the idea being that rather than taking something out each morning, we put something in!

We have been collecting for the Harrogate district foodbank. The foodbank relies on goodwill and support from the community to help local people in crisis. After visiting their website to find out what donations they are in need of at Christmas we have collectively been filling boxes in the office which we look forward to donating to the foodbank this week. Not only is the reverse advent calendar a great way to give to others but it is also calorie free…so we can eat that extra mince pie without feeling guilty!

Christmas Cards

Historically we have sent out Christmas cards to our clients but this year we have decided on a different approach. We will instead be donating money to a local charity called Supporting Older People (SOP).

SOP is a Harrogate based charity whose aim is to ‘help unlock loneliness’. Through a mix of home visits, social outings and other initiatives they work to combat isolation for older people. Whilst the festive period can be such a happy time for many, it can increase the feeling of loneliness for others so it seems very apt to donate to such a charity at this time.

When we contacted SOP to inform them of our donation they were overwhelmed and hugely grateful. As a relatively small, locally run charity we are sure that the money will make a huge difference to them and the lives of those they work with. If you would like to read more about the work they do, please visit their website.

We look forward to hearing from SOP regarding how the donation will be used and knowing our clients as we do we are sure that they will be as happy as we are with our choice.

We wish you a very happy holiday period and a prosperous New Year.
