Frederick Cooper Birmingham supports Birmingham City Mission, Toy- Link Appeal

Member News

Staff, customers and suppliers at Bordesley Green-based, Frederick Cooper Birmingham Ltd. are collecting Christmas presents for underprivileged children across the City who would otherwise miss- out this Christmas. 

Frederick Cooper has been trading in the Bordesley Green area for nearly 40 years and has always looked to support the communities in which many of our team members live.

The Birmingham City Mission’s (BCM) Toy-Link appeal provides thousands of children across Birmingham, who would otherwise miss out, with presents at Christmas. Steve Walker, Sales Manager at Frederick Cooper recommended the charity for internal consideration and said; ‘Christmas for me is about seeing the happiness in a child’s face when they see what they have received from Santa. I came across the Birmingham City Mission Christmas activity, and thought what better charity for Frederick Cooper to spread a little Christmas cheer. If just one of our donations makes a difference and inspires the life of a young person, we’ll be very happy.’

On Frederick Cooper’s support for their Toy Link appeal, Wes Erpen, Chief Executive of Birmingham City Mission said; ‘We are very grateful to Frederick Cooper as we are to all those companies and individuals that support us and the work we do. Every Christmas BCM distributes gifts to thousands of children in our city who would otherwise not receive presents. It is a mammoth task that relies on the generosity of many people who give toys, energy and time to ensure each child referred to us receives a sack of gifts on Christmas morning.’

Commenting on the appeal as a whole, Jon Stone, Sales Director at Frederick Cooper said,

‘We are proud to be supporting BCM and the fine work they do across the City. Toys have already started coming in and I am very grateful to our amazing colleagues, customers and suppliers for their support. As much as this provides a great opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, projects like this really serve to bring our people from across our network closer together, under a common goal. Building such relationships can only be good for business and good for everyone in the long term.’

If you would like to get involved and donate some toys to their christmas campaign, you can either drop the toys in at their head-office or post them to the following  address:  Frederick Cooper Ltd,44 Prince Albert Street, Bordesley Green, Birmingham, B9 5AZ
