Norwich Christian project brings a smile at christmas 

ENYP teamed up with local Boots stores and other organisations to raise a few more smiles this Christmas by distributing hampers packed with goodies to young people and their families.

Christmas is a time of hope and celebration, yet amidst all of the spirit of the season Norwich Christian youth project ENYP is aware that it can be a struggle for many children, young people and families.

ENYPChristmas1The charity took the opportunity to partner again with organisations including Boots, Sainsburys and Norwich Foodbank, and the UEA Student Labour Society to provide food hampers and Christmas presents for children and young people.

Danny Doran-Smith, ENYP Director said, “We’re so thankful to our partners who’ve provided hundreds of Christmas presents and food items for the children and young people we work in partnership with.  It’s an incredible privilege to be a blessing to families this Christmas.”

Paul Baines, Area Manager for Boots in Norwich, said, “For two years running now Boots UK have had the pleasure of working with ENYP.  To help this year we came up with the ‘A few more smiles for Christmas’ campaign which we rolled out across 15 Norwich Boots stores.  Our colleagues got behind this during November and we have successfully donated 200 Christmas presents to be distributed by the ENYP team across their relevant youth projects ahead of Christmas Day.  I would like to thank all the Boots colleagues and their families who made this happen.  We can’t wait for next year to continue to support this amazing organisation that is nurturing our youth of today.”
