These two very special young men, Ellis and Archer, have spent hours making Christmas decorations by hand and selling them to raise money to buy toys for us. They also did a toy collection too. What do you think everyone? Aren't they wonderful! #woodstreetxmas

Instead of the usual interoffice Secret Santa, this year our Macclesfield office decided to donate new toys, books and Christmas treats to @WoodSt_Mission. Our donations will be enjoyed by families living on low incomes in Greater Manchester. Great job team! #woodstreetxmas
