Staff forgo Christmas Do to Make Hamper Donation!

Staff at Amazing Brains NI, an award winning Social Enterprise that works in partnership with schools to inspire young people, have foregone their staff Christmas party to fund festive hampers for vulnerable older people. 

Leaving hampers into older people’s charity Age NI, Roisin McFeeley, Managing Director at Amazing Brains NI commented, 'At this time of year, you hear so many stories about older people who are struggling with loneliness, ill-health and money worries.

'As a social enterprise, the team at Amazing Brains NI are all too aware of the importance of giving back to society and we decided to support Age NI’s winter campaign to ‘Spread the Warmth’ this Christmas.

'So, we took our Christmas party budget and put together hampers for Age NI to distribute to vulnerable older people in the Belfast area.  We’re delighted to help the charity make a difference this winter.'

Siobhan Casey, Age NI added, 'We are so grateful to Roisin and her team.  What a thoughtful idea and a wonderful way to improve the lives of older people this winter.  It can be a difficult time of year for many.  70% of older people worry about staying warm.  Almost half feel more isolated from their local communities than ever before.

'Thanks to the team at Amazing Brains NI, Age NI can spread a little warmth this winter to older people in need.'
