Paul Crowley & Co officer manager, Rachel Frost, visited the school with assistant Louise Flood, for a special assembly on the 21st December.
The law firm, which has offices in Anfield, West Derby and the city centre, returned to the school to surprise each child with a special colouring bumper pack and a Christmas selection box.
Deputy Mayor, Councillor Ann O’Byrne, was also present on the day to celebrate Christmas with the school and present £1,000 to fund Christmas at the school, while social enterprise Peloton Liverpool provided ten bikes to be presented to the children.
Deputy Mayor, Councillor Ann O’Byrne, says: “Liverpool is rightly famous for its generosity and it is fantastic that at this time of year so many different organisations are coming together to support those in need.”
The visit is part of an ongoing link between the Anfield-based solicitors and its local primary school. The scheme has been running for five years, with the firm also gifting Easter eggs each year, helping to build relationships in the local community.
Nadine Carroll, head teacher at Whitefield Primary School, says: “We are incredibly appreciative of the support we receive from the local community, and it is wonderful to come together to collaborate and celebrate with local businesses at such a special time of year”.
“At Whitefield we have created a caring and close-knit environment, which encourages courtesy, care and confidence in all of our pupils. These core values are reinforced by our ongoing relationship with Paul Crowley & Co, and the children are always delighted to receive a special Christmas gift”.
Rachel Frost officer manager, says “It is incredibly important for local businesses to come together and support each other, and this is something to really celebrate at Christmas time.”
“These networks are what makes a community special, and so we are proud to work with Whitefield Primary throughout the year. I hope that all of the children enjoy their selection boxes and colouring packs, and remember the value of being kind to your neighbours.”
