Spreading Christmas Cheer at Children's Charity

22 Dec 2022 1:00PM

University of Suffolk staff, with Father Christmas in tow, dropped off donated gifts to the local Bumblebee Children's Charity this week.

The charity, based at Sproughton, is a specialist centre working together with families to support babies and young children with physical difficulties.

This week, staff and Father Christmas (retiring colleague Lenny Newbold) took wrapped presents collected at the University to the charity and dished them out.

Nigel Lucker, Director of Estates at the University of Suffolk said: "We were so delighted to be able support such a great local cause, especially at this time of year.

"Our staff donated over 100 presents for all ages and Father Christmas and his elves delivered them at the charity’s Christmas party."

Lisa Scott from the Bumblebee Children's Charity said: "I just want to say a huge thank you to all at the University for your amazing generosity.

"I am truly overwhelmed, we could not believe it. All those presents!

"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
