Giving back to our community
Christmas time can be challenging for those who are experiencing financial difficulty, especially with the added pressure and expectations the festive period can bring.
According to The Money Advice Trust, who give free, independent debt advice to people across the UK:
- One in 10 worry and feel stressed about money in the run up to Christmas
- One third of Britons are putting Christmas presents on credit this year
Some of that pressure can be eased via the support of Charity organizations such as Eastleigh Basics Bank who provide food donations, making the Christmas period a little easier.
“As a company, we feel it’s important to give back to our local community”. Comments Lavina Lawrence, HR/Operations Manager at Senseye.
So, for the second year in a row since the launch of this corporate initiative in 2018, Senseye will be collecting food donations throughout December to support those who need it the most.
Senseye HQ is also supporting a Southampton Science Park and Aareon initiative in collecting Christmas presents for Mission Christmas by Cash for Kids. All the presents collected will go to children in the local area who might miss out this Christmas period.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation reports that 1 in 3 children in the UK are living in poverty. This can be a difficult situation for children to understand.
As a result, Senseye tries to make a difference and bring a smile to a child’s face on Christmas Day.
It isn’t just the Christmas period that Senseye supports Charity organizations. All year long, Senseye, via their Hack Life Days program, supports its local communities.
