Colleagues at the Argos and Homebase head office in Milton Keynes are showing their generosity this Christmas by donating gifts to children in care.

The gifts were placed under a Christmas tree in the head office reception ready for Milton Keynes Council’s Children’s Social Care Team to deliver them to children in the local area.

Ceri Wootton, community affairs and workplace manager for Home Retail Group said: “We’ve been donating presents for a number of years now, and as one of the biggest retailers in Milton Keynes, we felt this was a perfect opportunity to contribute to the local community.”

Alastair Gibbons, Assistant Director – Social Care at Milton Keynes Council, said: “The donations made by the Home Retail Group make a real difference this and each Christmas by ensuring that children in need receive an extra special gift.

“In these difficult times families in need are very grateful for the continued and generous support from Home Retail Group employees. Support such as this helps to brighten up Christmas for many disadvantaged children in Milton Keynes at Christmas.”
