The Trussell Trust had an early Christmas delivery as staff at the Basildon office of UK telecoms business Daisy Communications made food bank donations to the charity.

The employees swapped the office Secret Santa for charity donations to the local food bank in a bid to help those most vulnerable in the area. In total, 30 presents were collected and donated to The Trussell Trust last week.

David Tootill, Business Development Executive at Daisy Communications, came up with the initiative and said: “Secret Santa can get tiresome and almost all the presents end up discarded and unwanted so I wanted to do something different.

“There are people who rely on food banks across the UK and, unfortunately, they won’t be able to buy Christmas presents for their children, so we decided to buy presents for them instead. We’ve had full support from across the company and, even though it’s just a small gesture, I hope it brings some happiness to those who need it most.”

After staff in Basildon supported the alternative Secret Santa so enthusiastically, they’ve decided to make it an annual tradition.
