A small corner of Gateshead looked more like Santa’s workshop last week, when the Sunshine Fund Christmas jumper day proved a big hit in the Cintra HR & Payroll Services office.

Cintra Sales Manager Nham Lee is a keen supporter of the Sunshine Fund and knew that fun loving Cintra staff would be only too happy to don their festive finery in aid of such a good cause.

The Sunshine Fund works to enhance the lives of local disabled children and their families through the provision of essential equipment, learning aids and custom built apparatus.

Nham said: “My lovely Cintra colleagues are always happy to support charitable initiatives, but I was bowled over by the number of people who took part in this.  There was a collection of some of the best Christmas jumpers I’ve ever seen…including a knitted Santa beard and hat.  As well as raising a fantastic amount for a very worthy cause and enjoying some Christmas treats, including stolen and mince pies, the festive atmosphere in the office was terrific.  We hope that our contribution adds to a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for all of the children supported by great work of the Sunshine Fund.”
