Liverpool pensions company donates Christmas presents to 250 elderly people
19 Dec 2015
Liverpool based MyCSP, the pensions services provider, which pays 670,000 pensioners, is helping Liverpool’s elderly enjoy a ‘White Christmas’ by donating £750 from its Community Fund as well as hundreds of presents.
Liverpool’s White Christmas project provides local elderly and vulnerable people, who would be alone on Christmas Day with company and a hot meal.
In addition to the £750 donation, MyCSP employee partners wanted to make sure everyone who attends on the day has a Christmas present to open. They raised extra money by taking part in a Christmas jumper day and bought presents to be given out on the day .
The MyCSP Community Fund was recently launched as part of a staff incentive to boost community spirit through giving back to the local community, to distribute 1% of its profits to charitable causes selected by its employee partners.
Nicky Hurst, CEO of MyCSP, said: “Christmas is a very special time, but can also be very lonely for many, particularly for older people who have no family to share it with. MyCSP and its employee partners have a close relationship with the elderly on a daily basis and were keen to support Liverpool’s White Christmas both in terms of a donation and presents.”
Clare Johnson, Project Manager for White Christmas Liverpool said: “With the help of MyCSP's generous staff who have given their time and money to buy and wrap presents for our guests, we can make a difference to those who need it most in our local communities. We were overwhelmed with their contributions to the project and send heartfelt thanks to all the staff and management at MyCSP for all their support in helping us to help others this Christmas.”
