Portsmouth firm to hand out Christmas gifts to children affected by domestic abuse
CHILDREN receiving help from a domestic abuse service will be given gifts this Christmas thanks to generous staff at a lead generation company in Portsmouth.Â
The team at Lead Forensics has raisedÂ funds for the Stop Domestic AbuseÂ (SDA) in Havant by holding a series ofÂ dress downÂ days.Â
Staff were charged Â£1 per day to wear their casual clothes and the firm matched every Â£1 donated by the team.
This meant that more thanÂ 80 presents worth Â£2,000 were donated.Â
Claire Lambon, CEO of the SDA,Â said: '˜Some of these children have been brought up to feel worthless.
'˜For them to know that other people who don't know them have bought them a present is amazing. Lead Forensics isÂ proud to be in a position to help such an important local cause and encourage people to give what theyÂ can this Christmas to those less fortunate.'Â
