Recently, a number of staff members from Walkers visited the Lighthouse School bearing gifts for the students.
Organised by the Compliance Department at Walkers, along with staff in the Finance Department, employees collected money from everyone on the fourth floor of Walker House to purchase gifts for the children.
Stockings were filled and distributed by partner Julian Black, who dressed as Santa Claus, and compliance administrator Sherene Jackson, who was dressed as Mama Claus.
They were assisted by compliance administrators Helen Bush and Tammy Welds.
‘Christmas at the Lighthouse School is always a very festive and happy occasion with celebrations and parties,’ said Carla MacVicar, Principal at the Lighthouse School.
‘We are thankful to the various members of the community that support us and Walkers coming here to give out stockings has been something different for the children which they really enjoyed.’
The Walkers staff also sang Christmas carols with the children during their visit.
‘The kids were so excited and grateful,’ Tammy Welds said.
‘It was truly heart-warming to see the smiles that we all helped to put on their precious faces.’
Mr. Black said: ‘The Lighthouse School plays such an important part in our community and we at Walkers are delighted to support it in any way that we can. To be able to bring a few smiles along the way at Christmas time makes it that much more worthwhile.’
