Countdown to Christmas made special for local children

Countdown to Christmas made special for local children

Cloudaccountant.co.uk staff, family and friends joined together to make the countdown to Christmas extra special for hundreds of local children in deprived circumstances.

Cloudaccountant.co.uk have donated over 320 chocolate advent calendars to Silklife Foodbank in Macclesfield to distribute to support local children in need. Families using the foodbank cannot otherwise give their children a treat many other children take for granted.

Silklife work in partnership with local frontline agencies to provide emergency food support to people and families who would otherwise go hungry.

Cloudaccountant.co.uk CEO, Nick Holmes, said: “The aim of the advent calendar appeal was to give hundreds of children each 24 moments of joy, while also raising awareness of the wider work of food banks and how they support local families in crisis throughout the year. Christmas is a time for giving, to get involved and show some support.”

Silklife Foodbank said: “We would like to extend an enormous thank you to Cloudaccountant for their amazing generosity. Christmas is a special time for children and it is such a blessing to be able to provide so many children with an advent calendar. Thanks again to all the staff and management.”
