Miller Hendry has been encouraging staff at its branches in Dundee, Perth and Crieff to get involved in its festive charity campaign, which sees the collection of small gifts for underprivileged children, with donations being delivered to The Salvation Army.
The Miller Hendry Angel Tree takes pride of place in the reception areas of the three offices and is decorated with little angels. Each angel contains the catalogue details and price of a child's Christmas gift costing between £3 and £10 from a high street store and staff have been asked to take an angel of their choice and donate the gift to help vulnerable families this Christmas through The Salvation Army.
2017 marks 152 years of The Salvation Army helping people facing difficulty from all walks of life across the United Kingdom. The work that they do to help local communities is completely reliant on donations and so campaigns, such as the Miller Hendry Angel Tree, are what enables them to help on average around 15,000 parent and toddlers a week and provide over three million nourishing meals throughout the year.
John Thom, Chairman of Miller Hendry, commented:
"The festive period gives us a great opportunity to help those a little less fortunate than ourselves and make sure they're able to celebrate this wonderful time of year. The staff have jumped at the chance to help and we've seen a great collection of children's gifts that we can donate to The Salvation Army.
"As solicitors, we deal with many different cases involving families and young people so we are very aware of the difficulties facing children in the local area. It's the little things that can really make a difference and we're thrilled to have been able to give a little back to our local community.
