This year Neuways, an IT Company based in Chellaston, Derby, has formed a supportive partnership with a local charity, Children First Derby.

Children First Derby is an incredible local charity that supports vulnerable children, young people, and families and provides Mentoring Services for Young People, Family Support Services and Supervised Contact Services for Looked After Children.

The staff and directors at Neuways have come together to donate gifts such as toys, books, board games, colouring pencils, toiletries, and sweets, that will be distributed across all the children supported by Children First Derby with ages ranging from birth to 18 years old, to help make this Christmas the best Christmas ever!

Neuways and Children First Derby are incredibly grateful for the local businesses and community who contributed and dropped off donations, including some amazing handmade knitwear for the children to keep them warm this winter, along with more toys and gifts we know will put a smile on their faces.

Martin Roberts, Managing Director at Neuways, said of the donation: “Our Team and our Business Partners have taken great pleasure this year in collecting for Children First Derby and contributing to the great work they do. We are delighted to be a part of making this Christmas special for the children supported by the local charity and hope these gifts bring them joy.

I am also extremely proud of all the staff at Neuways for coming together and contributing toys, games, books and more in aid of a great local cause.”

Irshad Baqui, Chief Executive of Children First Derby said: “We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the entire team at Neuways and their Business partners for their support and generosity in donating much-needed toys, games, books and much more. Your efforts are greatly appreciated, and the gifts will go a long way in ensuring that all our supported children, young people and families will receive a gift this year at Christmas. It will make a huge difference this year, especially when they are facing extraordinarily difficult circumstances.”

Donations like these help charities like Children First Derby ensure no child goes without a gift this Christmas and helps keep the magic of Christmas alive for them, whatever their circumstances may be. All the staff at Neuways are overjoyed to see their donations make a difference to children and families local to Derby.  

Neuways supports local community initiatives throughout the year as part of its ongoing commitment to Corporate and Social Responsibility.
