The amazing gift of giving

Posted on

This touching, not to mention truly inspirational story came to us. It shows that a lot can happen from what can start as a small initiative.

A Halifax Employment Trust employee and donor to the Community Foundation for Calderdale asked friends and family not to buy him any birthday presents for his 60th birthday.

Instead, they held a fundraiser and have raised £10,600 to fund people in Calderdale to learn how to do CPR and for defibrillators.

I’d like to think that many would like to join us in wishing:

Happy birthday sir, thank you for your generous gesture.
