FHP and clients provide festive cheer for children of Welbeck Primary School

FHP Property Consultants and its clients have partnered together to donate £6,500 and a range of gifts to deliver festive cheer to pupils at Welbeck Primary School in The Meadows, Nottingham.

With 2020 being a challenging year due to the pandemic, FHP decided to round up ten clients to join in a festive donation drop off, which added a touch of Christmas sparkle to the holidays for 400 young students and their families, at Welbeck Primary School.

FHP donated its £3,000 Christmas party fund to the cause and ten clients provided generous donations which made up the total sum of £6,500. Everyone also pitched in to buy gifts for the children, which included food vouchers for Christmas day, selection boxes from Santa and a variety of books.

Companies and clients that participated in the Christmas drop off included ALB Investments, Hoxston Developments, William May Developments, DSL Group, CODE Student Living, Skope Marketing, Jennie Holland PR, Tony Hogg and Sam Sangha.

David Hargreaves, founder of FHP Property Consultants, said: “As 2020 has been such a hard year, I spoke with the head teacher at the Welbeck Primary School, Rebecca Gittins, and between us we came up with a plan to spread a bit of Christmas cheer.

“The FHP donation was £3,000 with a further two donations of £1,000 going to two other worthy causes, but I soon realised it was not enough money to help 400 children and their families. As the property industry is well known for its big heart, I asked 10 clients if they would like to help out as well and each one of them said yes straight away, more than doubling the money available – allowing us to really make a difference.

“As an additional fun festive activity, FHP and Skope Marketing also organised a Christmas card competition, with the winner of each year group seeing their design turned in to 500 Christmas cards to give to parents and friends – it was great fun and the entries were very good.”

Welbeck Primary School head teacher, Rebecca Gittins, said: “It has been a tough year for us all, but the partial school closures, disruption to normal family life and cancellation of after school activities have all had a dramatic impact on children’s health and well-being. This support makes a huge difference to the happiness of our children and has brought many smiles during this difficult time. We are so grateful to everyone for their generosity.”
