We are very proud to support Sutton Coldfield based charity Buddy Bag Foundation, who help children in very difficult circumstances. We have organized and participated in various fund-raising activities on their behalf and have helped to pack Buddy Bags on two occasions in past.
But, on the 15th March it was all down to us! Our team packed 180 buddy bags in an exclusive buddy bag brigade crewed just by Four Oaks Financial Services’ financial advisers and support teams. This involved a few of us prepping the packing process with Buddy Bag director, Karen Williams. The pyjamas, underwear, toiletries, socks, photo frames, books and teddies were sorted by age and by boy or girl and placed on the packing tables.
The rest of our team then arrived and the packing of the bags began. Karen told us we were one of the fastest groups to complete this – but that’s a reflection our amazing teamwork!
Our Receptionist, Lisa Arnold made all the arrangements and said “This was a very thought provoking but fulfilling experience. Karen read out some of the feedback they’ve had from the children and it really brought home to us all how they are affected when parental relationships breakdown. We’ve all got a much deeper understanding of what Buddy Bag is doing and how important their work is when you appreciate what the children have to deal with.”
The buddy bags that we packed have been sent to help children who find themselves in women’s refuges around the UK.
