Rainbows bins return, Xmas choc appeal and Xmas fair date!

There are a lot of activities going on around Dimensions – read on to find out what the Dimensions' Social Committee have been planning:

Rainbows Bin – Monday 11–Friday 18 November

Following our support of the campaign earlier in the year, Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People have brought their brightly coloured recycling bins back to the business this week.

But the bins aren’t after rubbish, instead any of the following, unwanted items bagged up ready to be donated:

  • Clean clothing
  • Shoes
  • Household linen
  • Unwanted gifts
  • Jewellery
  • Accessories
  • Books
  • Toys
  • Mobile phones

Hope for a Coat – Village Hotel

We are going to help the Village Hotel in their efforts to provide winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves for the homeless this winter – so while looking for items for the Rainbows bins, if you have any items that could be redistributed to the homeless, please bring them into the Castle Donington office and we will put a box in the canteen for these to go into.

ForgetMeNotts – Christmas Selection Box appeal

After the very successful collection last year, Harper Recruitment have asked if Dimensions will support this appeal again this Christmas. The idea is to donate as many Cadburys medium sized selection boxes as possible for orphans and children in care. A box will be in the canteen for donations, deadline for donations is Tuesday 3 December

Doorways Derby

The collection boxes remain in the canteen, food stuff and hygiene products are constantly needed for the homeless, please see if you have any items at home, or if you can add a couple of extra bits to your weekly shop. Everything is very much appreciated.

Christmas Fair – 28 November in the Canteen

A Christmas Fair will be held in the Canteen this year: 

Totes are going to be taking part with lots of their winter goodies on offer - slippers, socks and much more. We are also asking for any staff, family or friends, who would like to host a stall to put their names forward.  Due to space, we can only accept 5 additional stalls, and we will charge £10 per stall (for our charity pot). 

If you would like to host one of these stalls then please email confirmation to the Social Committee asap as it will be first come, first served.

Christmas Carol Singing

Did you take part last year, or would you like to take part this year for the first time? If we have enough volunteers we will most definitely do this again as it was a lot of fun! Please email the  to put your name forward and we will arrange some rehearsal sessions.
