Christmas Gifts for Carers!

Christmas Gifts for Carers!

This Christmas, staff at the leading business advisory firm Deloitte organised a ‘Giving Tree’ and purchased gifts for over 200 central London carers!

Carers were invited to request a gift by filling in a card at Carers Rights Day events. These cards were then put on a ‘Giving Tree’ at Deloitte’s London office, with staff choosing a card and then personally buying the gift requested!

Unpaid carers don’t get time off at Christmas, and get little chance to think about treating themselves. But this Christmas more than 200 Deloitte employees gave a thought and a personalised gift to local carers  this was such a kind and generous initiative and we’re hugely grateful to all at Deloitte for making this happen.”
Sarah Mitchell, Chief Executive, Carers Network
