Ionic Recruitment, the specialist consultancy within Construction, Social Housing and Maintenance sectors, has truly embraced the festive spirit this year by donating 30 presents to Wire FM’s Christmas toy appeal.
The Christmas toy appeal is an initiative designed to put a smile on the faces of local, vulnerable children who may not receive a present on Christmas day. Wire FM collects presents donated by businesses in the North West and delivers them to Children’s charities across Warrington, Widnes and Runcorn.
After hearing about the charitable appeal on Wire FM, Ionic Recruitment began encouraging its staff to get involved. Rather than spending money on a secret Santa present this year, the business donated presents to the toy appeal, gathering an impressive 30 gifts in total.
Martyn Makinson, Managing Director of Ionic, says: “I believe it’s important to try to give something back to the local community in any way possible and I was particularly impressed by Wire FM’s cause. Everyone in the office was keen to get on board with the event and I’m delighted with the number of gifts donated to the initiative.”
Ionic Recruitment is continuing with this charitable theme in 2015, having signed up the whole company to the Bupa Great Manchester Run, which takes place in May.
Martyn continues: “We are all running in the Bupa Great Manchester Run next year and we are currently in the process of choosing a local charity to support. We will be setting a fundraising target early next year, so we can get a head start!”
The Christmas toy collection took place on 15th December.
