Derbyshire charity Safe and Sound has been chosen as a recipient for a national initiative encouraging businesses to donate the unused cost of their Christmas charity. Xmas Party Heroes has set up an online platform for donations in recognition that the usual ‘office Christmas party’ will not be possible due to Covid restrictions and enabling businesses to instead support a charity of their choice.

Safe and Sound chief executive Tracy Harrison said: “Although it is disappointing that we will not be able to celebrate Christmas with colleagues this year, the Xmas Party Heroes
initiative is a great idea. “We know that our local business community is full of Superheroes – not least those who donned their costumes and joined our Leap of Faith abseil earlier this year.
“Now I hope that businesses large and small will get behind this great initiative and support us in our work to help transform the lives of children and young people who are victims of
or at risk of child exploitation as well as their families.”
