The charity committee at Head Resourcing have been busy this December collecting books for Stepping Stones. Thanks to the generosity of colleagues, clients, contractors, candidates and suppliers a total of 230 books have been collected exceeding the initial target of 140. These books were delivered to the charity yesterday and will be given to the children just before Christmas.

Stepping Stones (North Edinburgh) is a voluntary organisation that provides support services to young parent families and pregnant women living in the North Edinburgh area. They aim to promote and support the social development and education of families with young children. They provide opportunities for local families to make positive choices in order to reduce isolation and increase parental confidence.  Reading to children is a truly special way to bond with them and educate them in a fun and interactive way.

The charity committee at Head Resourcing organises a number of events throughout the year and chooses a different charity for each event. A total of £6500 has been raised this year alone.  Charities this year include Sports Relief, The Yard, Erskine Veterans, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer, Blythswood Care and Children In Need.

Through the support of all the employees at Head Resourcing along with support from clients, suppliers, candidates and contractors a real difference can be made whilst raising the profile of the brand and engaging with a wider audience.
