staff at online ironmongery supplier, IronmongeryDirect, have gone the
extra mile to collect Christmas gifts, decorations and food for families at the
Basildon-based Changing Pathways Refuge, which provides safe
accommodation to women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse.

IronmongeryDirect team collected over 100 gifts for almost 40 children
at the refuge, as well as donating a large selection of festive decorations and
food including string lights, tinsel and wrapping paper. IronmongeryDirect also
held a staff raffle, raising a grand total of £1,000 for the charity. The
proceeds will help to support families who would otherwise go without this

Saxby, Senior Category Manager at IronmongeryDirect and collection
organiser, said: “Changing Pathways is an incredible charity which provides
support and refuge to vulnerable women and their children. As a team, it has
been fantastic to rally together this December to collect gifts and help to
bring some festive cheer for families at the refuge this Christmas.”

Robson, Chief Executive Officer at Changing Pathways, said: “We can’t thank the
team at IronmongeryDirect enough for bringing some much needed joy at
this time of year. The continued generosity from businesses and individuals in
our community means so much, especially during the festive period which is
often a difficult time of year for our families.”
