Since 2018, Chigwell Group has been proud to be the headline sponsor of the Collier Row Community Group’s annual Christmas event, and this year’s proved to be the biggest yet.
The Candyland’ Christmas themed event saw hundreds of families spend the afternoon and early evening wandering around the town visiting the many stalls before ending up meeting Santa in our showroom which had again been transformed into a fabulous grotto.
The grotto was due to close at 8.00pm, but so many people turned up this year that the showroom actually closed at 9.30pm with some children waiting over an hour to meet Santa.
But nobody seemed to mind especially as over 1000 free presents were handed out and the performing arts students from Havering College kept everyone entertained.
Dean Floyd, Chairman of Chigwell Group said. “We take our responsibly of working in the community very seriously, and the Collier Row Christmas event is a perfect example of this. So many families are struggling to pay bills at the moment, let alone buy presents for their children, and I have been really touched by the messages of thanks that have been sent to us and posted on social media from some very grateful parents and children”.
