Co-op teams up with Our Place to deliver festive fun for local children

Staff at the Sutton Coldfield branch of Co-op Travel made the Friday before Christmas a very special occasion for a group of local children.

Working together with their chosen charity, Our Place Community Hub, the Travel Agents volunteered their time to throw a great Christmas party for the children being supported through Our Place.

In true Christmas spirit, the Royal Town’s United Reform Church gave their venue free of charge for the party which was enjoyed by the children and their parents and carers as they took part in all the traditional party games as well as a mannequin challenge. Of course the day wouldn’t have been complete without a visit from the jolly chap himself, Farther Christmas, too.

Kelly Round from Our Place Community Hub said:

“We are so very grateful to the staff at Coop Travel for offering to plan and facilitate the party this year. It’s something we have done in previous years and its very popular with the families we work with but this year we just didn’t have the time or financial resources to deliver. When Sam and Sarah from Coop Travel came to see us and found out we weren’t able to do the party they offered their support straight away and made a fantastic job of it too!”

Our Place works with families from the local area offering a wide range of advice and support services. For more information visit
