Come on County: Cuddly Toys
This statement alone reminds me of the memory part of the Generation Game. Now, I’m showing my age, but atleast a few of you might recall that ‘conveyor belt’ stocked with items that the contestants had to remember.
Just thought a couple of newsworthy points I’d like to highlight.
The first, is a massive WELL DONE to my accountants and also client, that I have supported on business development, primarily with sports clubs and NGBs. This being Sedulo. Once again, they have surpassed themselves in their annual charity gesture by collecting and donating Christmas presents for families and children who otherwise might go without.
As the Firm said: “Through no fault of their own, half a million UK children live in poverty and wake up at Christmas to find Santa hasn’t visited. Every year our Toy Appeal teams up with charities and carers to help stop that from happening and this year it’s needed more than ever.” Sponsors wrap, label and deliver gifts to its offices in Manchester, Leeds, London and Liverpool where they host a festive-themed reverse grotto event.
The second is a noteworthy action by the Spanish Club, Real Betis. Of all the traditions in sports, this Spanish top-flight football Club stands out for an act of kindness. Annually before Christmas, the supporters shower the pitch with soft toys for underprivileged kids. This Year was no exception, as thousands of fans threw teddy bears and cuddly toys onto the pitch during half-time.
Come on County? Personally, I like this and wonder if Stockport County could be the first English Club to mimic this charitable tactic.
