This month’s charity donation was chosen by one of our Microsoft Dynamics 365 Consultants, Melanie Fernandez. All proceeds will be going to Derek’s Tree.
Here’s what Melanie had to say about her chosen charity:
“I wanted to choose a charity from my local area to make an impact close to home and Derek’s Tree provides Christmas presents for disadvantaged children in and around Burton upon Trent.
“Each year, they have a huge Christmas tree in the town centre where people can collect tags and then purchase, wrap and return the gift to be distributed and this year, with the Covid-19 outbreak, there will be more children in need than ever.”
Presents donated go to local organisations such as Bernardo’s and Homestart to ensure they’re received by those most in need of a little Christmas cheer.
This long-running local charity has been spreading the festive spirit for 26 years! To find out more, visit the Derek’s Tree Facebook page.
