Cheshire College – South & West has joined forces with businesses across the region to support students and their families over the Christmas holidays by providing over 400 hampers full of a wide range of food, drinks, toiletries and festive treats.
With a number one priority to support students’ health, safety and wellbeing all year-round, Cheshire College is very aware that the Christmas break leaves some students and families without the day-to-day support they receive from connections and resources found outside of the home.
That is why the College reached out to local businesses, such as Unilever, to collaborate on the Christmas hampers and provide some extra comforts to students during the break including shower gel, hair products, food, drinks and laundry tablets.
The Christmas hampers have been distributed to students across their Crewe, Ellesmere Port and Chester Campuses on a ‘no questions asked’ basis throughout the final week of term.
Mark Parsons, Assistant Principal of Curriculum at Cheshire College – South & West, said: “It’s incredibly important that the College continues to make a positive and valued contribution to society, which is why we have and will continue to support all our students. It has been truly inspiring to see the College community, our partners and local businesses working together on this project and showing fantastic support for everyone involved.
“We know, now more than ever, things are feeling that bit tougher for everyone, so we are delighted to be able to continue our tradition of giving something back to our students and families after they have shown tremendous resilience and kindness throughout the year so far.”
