At Christmas time, the Kimpton team pull all the stops out to give a little back to the communities in which we live and work. This year, the level of support and generosity has reached a new high, with different initiatives from all over the business. Here’s a round-up of just some of the things we’ve done as a team.
We love the work of the Mission. In their own words, they look to help men and women who are homeless, poor and needy, out of poverty. They provide hot food, clothing, toiletries, other basic essentials, along with love, care and compassion. Perhaps most importantly, they treat people with dignity and kindness.
The Kimpton team donated food and other goods and delivered them in time for distribution over Christmas. The pictures show some of the team dropping off the boxes earlier this week.
Everyone loves a good Christmas jumper (well, nearly everyone) and this week saw the annual Christmas Jumper day at the Kimpton Offices. Most of the team took part with some truly horrific festive creations on display.
Our Business Development Manager, Matt Breakwell, missed the brief completely and just wore an everyday jumper with a slight pattern on it and was fined accordingly. He started a debate on LinkedIn and even enlisted the help of Santa himself. Ultimately, his appeal failed to save him from having to make an additional donation. The money raised was donated to Save the Children – a charity close to our hearts.
We’re working with Nightingale House on a large refurbishment project and as they are running a Christmas Tree Collection Service on Saturday, 11 January 2020, we just had to get involved.
The volunteers from the Kimpton team are giving up some of our time to go out into the local community and remove people’s old Christmas trees, in exchange for a donation to Nightingale House Hospice. If you’re in one of the eligible postcodes and would like yours taken away, you can sign up here.
Working on the Avril Robarts project in Liverpool with our partners Willmott Dixon, the team collected money and toys for the charity Mission Christmas – Cash For Kids. All of the donations go directly to ensuring disabled and disadvantaged children in Merseyside can wake up with a present at Christmas.
We were also involved with collection and donation for Knowsley Food Bank which is part of The Big Help Project. Last year they helped with over 6,300 three-day emergency food supplies given to people in crisis. They rely entirely on the support of the local community for food donations. You can see Matt from the Kimpton team here with a very full van, being donated.

The Plaza is a showpiece building for Bruntwood in Liverpool and we have since made it our own headquarters in the city. To reflect this, we needed to ensure that the fit out was of the highest quality, whilst maintaining the high levels of service our tenants expect from Bruntwood.
