Brightening up the Christmas shift

4th December 2015

Working over Christmas is something 66% of people in the UK will be enduring this holiday season, but you have the chance to really make someone’s Christmas Day!

We’re always looking for ways to surprise and delight our customers, and this year, as part of our Making Christmas Warmer campaign, we are going to dish out Christmas hampers to five people who have to trek into work across Christmas to help make their day that little bit nicer. .

Almost one in three of us will be working on Christmas Day itself, which means spending time away from family and friends, and the disheartening experience of watching other people enjoying themselves while you’re clocking on.

In fact, 41% of people say they cannot relax at all while they’re working over Christmas, so a surprise package courtesy of Cotton Traders will surely help bring them a little joy over the festive period!

If you know someone who will be working hard this December 25th, all you need to do is visit our Facebook page on December 4th and 5th, and look out for the competition post.

Xmas Warmer

Simply write a comment with the name of the person you wish to nominate, and we will pick five nominees at random to receive a parcel.

The people of the UK are already pretty generous over the festive season – a whopping 39% of people have swapped shifts so that colleagues with young families can enjoy the day off. It sounds to us like you’re a thoughtful bunch, so this is the perfect opportunity to spread the Christmas spirit a little bit further.

40% of the people working over Christmas don’t have a choice, and over a quarter of people enjoying the day at home feel guilty about family and friends who are stuck at work. We really want to celebrate these people, so help us ‘make Christmas warmer’, and get nominating your Christmas working heroes!
