Festive cheer swept through First Choice Group offices today with the surprise delivery of a Christmas tree!
An impromptu visit by volunteers and service users from Old Tree Nursery ended with the generous donation being made to company Director, Carl Bate.

The gift was a thank you to First Choice after the UK’s number one supplier of catering spare parts donated £1,000 to Old Tree’s fundraising appeal, launched after a break-in at the Wolverhampton based organisation left it penniless.
A spokesman for the Nursery said: “From the bottom of our hearts we cannot thank First Choice Group enough for its kind and generous donation.

“We hope this tree will brighten up their offices and ensure everyone there has a very merry Christmas.”
The tree, which features decorations made by Old Tree Nursery service users will be on display in the reception area at First Choice Group’s offices in Cannock.

Director, Carl Bate, said: “It’s a lovely gesture from the Nursery and totally unexpected.”

Old Tree Nursery is First Choice Group’s chosen charity for 2017. The company will be holding events throughout the year to raise money for the organisation - a not for profit project - which provides training, education and employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities and poor mental health.
