Our Big Christmas Giveaway 2017


two little children with gifts and Christmas tree - Axis Foundation Big Christmas Giveaway

 

 

 

 

 

The Big Christmas Giveaway is an Axis Foundation initiative which sets aside t£10,000 each year for donations to individuals and organisations who need a bit of extra help at this time of year. The Axis Foundation asks its own Axis people to nominate potential recipients for a donation from this fund.

As they are regular volunteers in their local communities Axis people are well placed to choose causes and people that are not only dear to their hearts but also where they know a donation will have most impact and effect.

This year, the Great Big Christmas Giveaway 2017 has lived up to its name and given away £10,000 in donations bringing happiness and comfort to nine individuals and organisations. All these individuals and organisations were put forward by Axis people wanting to help the people they come across in their working day.

• A teenage boy who is deaf and severely disabled requiring full time care will be able to get away to Disneyland in Paris with his father.
• Axis Foundation “Santas” brought Christmas gifts to a mum suffering from cancer and her children.
• A seriously ill little girl received a new specialist recliner bed which helped her – and her carers.
• Support was found for recently-bereaved family in the form of new carpeting and vouchers.
• A Day Centre which provides meals (as well as care and company and friendship ) received new kitchen utensils.
• An elderly resident received a new cooker – and our teams also installed and checked it all for him too.
• The Foundation supplied and re-carpeted an elderly lady’s flat – bringing warmth and emotional comfort too.
• MS Society Bexley & Dartford was able to buy a shed to store their donations and equipment.
• For a little girl with osteosarcoma, a dream came true: she is able to go to Spain to see her cousin get married.

 

 

Now in its second year of giving, The Axis Foundation’s  Big Christmas Giveaway given away a total of £20,000. Following its motto to be “At the heart of the Community”, The Axis Foundation has, in its nine-year history, donated nearly £1m to over 150 charities, causes and individuals within the community who make a difference to people in their care.
