This year instead of giving Christmas cards the team at Advanex Bilborough decided to use the money to put together goody boxes for the Framework Housing Association in Nottingham.

Homelessness is a complicated issue and Framework is dedicated to helping homeless people, preventing homelessness and promoting opportunities for excluded and vulnerable people. The team had great fun in putting together some fantastic goody boxes with items ranging from everyday essentials to festive luxuries.
