Santa’s helpers at Cintra HR & Payroll have leapt into action early this year and are working hard to make sure that the countdown to the festive season is enjoyed by as many children in the region as possible, by donating over 100 advent calendars to the Newcastle Foodbank.

Having supported the Newcastle Foodbank with a firm-wide collection during National Payroll Week earlier in the year, Cintra was humbled by the great work they encountered and vowed to lend further support. Accounts Assistant, Shaun Lowery came up with the idea to ask his colleagues to donate advent calendars and selection boxes, which could be then be passed on to the families helped by the foodbank.

Once again he was bowled over by the enthusiasm and generosity of his colleagues: “The advent calendar collection was amazing. It totally swamped our meeting room table. We appreciate that the build up to the festive season is an exciting time for children and we hope that the small gift of an advent calendar or selection box will help spread a bit of Christmas cheer.”
