Christmas good cheer…

Industry Database

UK company AMI Marine have partnered up with Cash for Kids, a national children’s charity which helps underprivileged children live life to the full and realise their individual potential.

Seven team members from AMI Marine volunteered at the charity’s warehouse, working alongside charity organisers, sorting and preparing the gifts that had come in. The team helped sort over six hundred and forty gifts for children.

In addition to volunteering, the team at AMI Marine decided not to do a 'Secret Santa' or give gifts to each other this year, but instead donate to 'Cash for Kids'.

Sales Support Manager Lauren said "When we volunteered it became apparent that there was a shortfall of gifts for teenage boys. We were also told that some children who move between homes do not always have suitable bags to carry their possessions in. We decided to do our part to help these kids. We put together ten backpacks filled with both a selection of daily necessities and some other little gifts to keep them occupied.”

Company Director Martin Davidson said "We love getting involved in great local causes. As a father myself I understand the joy at Christmas and want every child to have that!"

Operations Manager Cheryl added "We had the best time. It was great fun and fulfilling. I also felt very emotional at how important these gifts are and the fantastic work being done."  New apprentice Sam said "It was a fantastic afternoon. I'm so happy that I was able to get involved and help the kids."
