This Christmas, Parkview Retail Ltd wanted to give a little back to the city’s most needy children. So our very own little Santa’s helpers (Lucy & Paula) suggested joining the Christmas toy appeal. Southampton Voluntary Services have run the toy appeal for 34 years from their base in St Mary’s. This was so close to home for all of our staff we just had to do something to help! There are 3,000 names on the list of children, who without this help may not even receive one present this Christmas.
Our staff gave up their free time to help make a difference and went shopping. With the help of £200 from the safe and more than £100 stock from the store, a very sizable amount of presents were donated. But it did not stop at there, a few of our customers heard what was going on and even more gifts were given.
We wish all of our customers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
