Colleague Box show support for Derby charity with Christmas pledge

Derby business, Colleague Box, has pledged its support to a city charity which helps victims of child exploitation and their families.

The personalised gift box company set up by Spondon husband-and-wife Adam and Natalie Bamford last year will donate profits from their Christmas range to Safe and Sound. It is the second consecutive year that Colleague Box, based in the Northedge Business Park, Alfreton Road, has supported the charity.

Last year Colleague Box raised more than £5,000 for Safe and Sound, which enabled the charity to purchase a much-needed mini bus, enabling its youth and support workers to help and protect more children and young people in the community.

Managing Director Natalie Bamford was also involved in the charity’s Guinness World Record attempt for the largest display of butterfly replicas – part of Safe and Sound’s ongoing Butterfly Appeal.

Local people and businesses were invited to purchase professionally-printed butterfly images, which were displayed in the Derbion shopping centre, in Derby.

Natalie, a former teaching assistant, said: “Safe and Sound do an incredible job of supporting young people and their families in Derby and transforming lives. It is a privilege to support their work once again and we hope that we can raise a significant amount of money so that they can continue the good work which they do.”

Safe and Sound CEO, Tracy Harrison, added: “Colleague Box are amazing supporters of Safe and Sound.

“They helped us to create our own Colleague Box – called the Hope Box – which individuals and companies can sponsor for the children we work with. Each box included positivity cards, a bath bomb, butterfly colouring book, sweet treats, a worry stone and personal message from their case worker.

“We are extremely grateful for their donation pledge again this Christmas and their support will enable us to help even more children, young people and their families across Derby and Derbyshire.”
