We're taking part in Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 18 December! It doesn't matter where we are - at home, work or school – on Christmas Jumper Day all you need to do is get your silliest, most festive jumper on and donate to Save the Children.
By pulling on our Christmassy knits and donating, we'll be transforming the future for children. Every pound we raise will give children in the UK and around the world the chance to grow up healthy and happy, and change the future for good. Just £2 could pay for a bottle of hand sanitiser to help fight coronavirus in a Save the Children medical clinic, whilst £20 could pay for a back-to-school kit for a child in Indonesia.
Simply click the donate button above to give your £2 (or more if you're feeling generous...) and help us reach our team target. We've also got our own QR code - simply scan the code with your phone camera and donate directly to our team! Not sure how it works?

We donated a Capsule machine and a large number of capsules to our local NHS trust for the NHS Coffee Appeal. We are happy to see that we have played a small part in raising the morale during these tough times. (Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS foundation Trust, Head to Toe Charity) .
Thank you for the unfailing support that you have given Head to Toe Charity and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, for helping our NHS get through these challenging times, and for rallying the community around our staff and patients.
The last few months have been tough. Never has our National Health Service had to cope with, or respond to anything like the Covid-19 pandemic, and that response has been heroic; taking huge amounts of hard work and resolve.
But, that response is also on the back of the incredible morale boost from the businesses, community groups and organisations like yours, who have gone above and beyond to lift the spirits of our staff and the patients they care for. Thanks to your help, Head to Toe Charity has been able to distribute gifts, care packages and donations across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust – to demonstrate to our NHS staff just how much our wider community appreciates their hard work.

We're proud to announce that we have recently sponsored a local football team known as Ketton Ladies Football Club.
Ketton Ladies Football Club is a part of Ketton Football Club which consists of 2 male teams, a ladies’ team and a new junior under 11 team. They play and train at Pit Lane in Ketton; matches start at 2pm on Sundays and the ladies have a training session every week on Thursday evenings between 7 and 8. The training takes place on a floodlit area at the edge of the Pit Lane facility.
The ladies play in the S-Tech Cambridgeshire Womens Premier League. The team has gradually improved over the last 3 years culminating with winning the Division 1 North title last season and only losing one league game. They are hoping this improvement will continue and have added new signings to the existing squad over the summer. Currently the squad consists of between 20 – 25 committed ladies ranging in age from 16 through to 40s. The ladies are supported by a manager and assistant manager who also coach them during the training sessions.
In the last year the team have made affiliations with a ladies’ football club in Sweden and also took part in an international 7 a side tournament in Barcelona. They have travelled to Sweden in each of the last 2 years to play the team in a pre-season friendly. They are also looking to take part in the Barcelona tournament in 2020 as well.
Over the past couple of years finding a sponsor had been very difficult they say. They had approached several businesses in the Stamford area without success. They were very fortunate to find not one but two sponsors last season who have sponsored their kit and tracksuits. The tracksuits in particular are very beneficial to the team as they have always wanted to look more professional when they arrive at matches and training sessions. This was very evident when they made the trip to the Barcelona tournament as it gave the players an identity and belonging. It also made the team stand out and they were asked many questions about the tournament and where they were from.
The tracksuits have raised questions about the sponsor such as who they are and what they do. This provides exposure, positive advertisement and promotion. Without the support of sponsors such as Masteroast, the team would not be in as strong a position to attract new players.
Our letter of thanks from the Royal British Legion for our annual donation to them.
Dear Mr Mills,
Happy New Year to you!
I wanted to reach out and say thank you to you and your colleagues for the amazing donation you made at the end of 2018! It was great to see that our charity was supported alongside The Royal British Legions Poppy Appeal in commemoration of 100 years since the end of the First World War.
This donation will enable us to continue to support our members throughout their time with us, whether that is by providing them with tech to communicate with their families, equipment to aid their home life, activity days with fellow members as well as visits from our Community Support Workers and Rehabilitation staff.
Many thanks once again for your kindness and generosity.
