This year we will, instead of posting Christmas cards, be making a donation of £250 to the Welcome centre. We did this last year and were delighted at the response from our vendors, landlords and builders.
The Welcome Centre work with homeless and vulnerable people in the city and surrounding areas, offering unconditional support and care. http://www.homelessbelfast.org At McMillan, our business is based on our mission statement and values and contributing to local charities is a key part of what we do. Every year since the business opened in 2002 we have contributed a percentage of our residential and rental fees to our four nominated charities.
This year we have been supporting Belfast Youth Clubs Lighthouse Alzheimer’s Association NI Children Hospice Some names are well known but others e.g. Lighthouse are less so. Information on the valuable work it and the others do are available on their web sites.
During the year, we host coffee mornings, this year one of our successful events was in support of the SOS bus initiative, and on Friday 16th December we are holding a Christmas jumper day in support of Save the Children.
All that remains is to wish you and your families and friends a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year! From all the team at McMillan
