Hobson & Porter has provided sponsorship towards a Christmas charity project which encourages children to bake cookies in exchange for gift donations.
The Cookie Elf Project is a fun and exciting initiative for the children who take part, a project aimed at inspiring the true spirit of Christmas among children and young people and acknowledging that not all youngsters may be as fortunate as themselves.
In the unique Christmas project, youngsters bake homemade cookies and swap them for wrapped toys and gifts to pass onto local charities.
Hobson & Porter has helped the project by providing certificates, frames and gifts for the elves to exchange. We also worked with Beerhouse Selfdrive who provided vans to help deliver the gifts to local charities across the Humber region.
Now in its third year, Cookie Elves 2018 saw 88 elves aged between three months and 16 years collect a whopping 650 presents – with more still being donated – far surpassing the original target of 300.
Throughout December, elves each baked their own cookies before visiting family, friends and colleagues dressed as Christmas elves to exchange them for gift donations, which were this year used to support seven charitable causes across the Humber region.
