just delivered loads of sweets to childrens home
once again all the sweets I recieve of the staff have been given to a childrens home. This year I chose a place in middlesbrough.
pluss I gave a box of sweets to a little boy who is under protection after a horrible case of child abuse.
I just have a tin of buiscuits left which is going to the old peoples home just down the road, then thats it for another year.
feeling really good,
Merry chistmas gang

Merry Christmas to you, as you certainly deserve it.
It's really nice to see somebody actually doing something of no benefit to themselves. Well done that man!

Well done that man!
I don't get stuff now I'm not in a school, but we have sorted out a collective christmas card within the team, and this year the deserving charity is NSPCC. Quite a few of the LA teams now do this and just send out a collective email to wish other teams a merry Christmas instead.

My boss appreciates me though :-)

Merry Christmas Kev, I'm sure they will be appreciated.
I've decided to make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society rather than send cards/gifts to clients this year.

My family on my Grandma's side used to run a Children's home in Middlesbrough years and years ago.

I respect people who look after children who are in dire straits, its a sad world we live in and unfortunately its getting worse... far to many drunk and drug a busing famillies. we had a famillie who lived next door to us that was the type I hate with a passion. You can see the kids suffering just by the way they act in society. I think its aften the parents who act the same treat their kids the same way.

I always give flowers to the poeple of the childrens home I choose.
Next year I want to try and get the whole school to select a charity and both staff and kids donate a quid towards a childrens home, rather than presents for each other etc.
I never give chirstmas cards or presents to staff... its always a donation to the people that need it more.
I was in New york this year and I baught a homeless guy a bottle opener and gave him a coffee and some money. the fiancee and I sat with him for a while having a chat.... it was nice
