Our elves are busy this Christmas!

Our elves are busy this Christmas!

December has arrived and everyone at Arena knows what that means … It’s time for our volunteers to dust off their Christmas hats, dig out their festive jumpers, practice their dance moves and get ready for some festive fun!

The Big Give

Our volunteers help to wrap presents for underpriviledged children in Bradford, many of whom probably wouldn't otherwise receive gifts on Christmas Day.

The team spent their day putting batteries into toys and dropping them into gift bags. Stickers were added before gathering the gifts together, ready for an event themed around Disney's 'Fozen' - which will be hosted for the lucky children closer to Christmas.

Arena's Lyndsey Standidge attended The Big Give for the 3rd consecutive year and told us why it's so fulfilling. "Its always nice to be able to offer help and support to others less fortunate, especially around Christmas time. All in all we had a great day, roll on next year!"

Holbeck Elderly Aid Christmas Party

A keenly anticipated event on the Arena Group CSR calendar, this year’s party was quickly subscribed by volunteers who returned to help ensure that it was a success.

Holbeck Elderly Aid helps older people to live independently by providing a range of activities such as lunch clubs, IT classes and shopping trips to the local supermarket. At the annual Christmas party our volunteers help with an array of tasks, from setting tables and serving food and drinks to selling raffle tickets and showcasing a spot of the ‘hokey-cokey’!

This year’s festive meal was followed by a tombola. At the end of the party, our volunteers handed out gifts – donated by Arena Group colleagues – to ensure that every attendee left with a present to enjoy.

Arena's Mike Alsancak commented; “it’s great fun being there and really satisfying when you see how much the guests enjoy the party.”

Leeds Rotary Club Christmas Card Posting

Our volunteers will be out posting Christmas cards in support of Leeds Rotary Club on December 17th. If you see them, please give them a cheery wave!

Can our volunteers help you?

At Arena we are keen to give something back to our local communities so we are always seeking community or charity projects for our volunteers. Whether you have a party to host, a garden to weed, walls to paint or skills to take advantage of, please get in touch to apply for a CSR visit! Simply drop an email to us at marketing@arenagroup.net
