NATS donates 421 presents to children in Hampshire to support Mission Christmas
Employees at NATS hope to put a smile on the faces of children across Hampshire this Christmas after donating more than 400 presents in a local campaign.
From toy trucks and cars to jigsaws and books, NATS employees have donated various gifts for toddlers to teenagers as part of radio station Wave 105’s campaign Mission Christmas.
The air traffic service provider and colleagues from EMCOR UK collected 421 gifts over three weeks at its headquarters in Whiteley and also raised £1,006 to help support children in poverty in the south.
Jo Thornton, Engagement Manager at NATS who organised the donations, said: “Christmas is the time for giving and everyone at NATS and EMCOR UK quickly got behind the campaign and have been incredibly supportive of this cause. We enjoy supporting various charities and volunteering schemes each year. It’s really important that we can give back to our community and hope these gifts can put a smile on the children’s faces this Christmas.”
Mari-Louise White, Wave 105 Cash for Kids charity manager said: “We’re very grateful to the employees of NATS for all they’ve contributed to the Mission Christmas appeal. These presents will go a long way in putting a smile on the faces of children living in poverty.”
