Boss’ Boss Debra Burns has plenty of plans for Christmas this year.
Though Christmas is a time for gifting, spending time with loved ones food, it’s important to remember those who are not able to do this.
Debra is a huge supporter of giving back to those in need. Our chosen charity this year is Barnabus.
For 25 years Barnabus have been providing life-changing support to the homeless.
“They offer a lifeline to the homeless and vulnerable people each week, many of whom have severe addictions or mental health issues. Barnabus support their physical, emotional and spiritual needs and do all they can to help them get back into mainstream society. They have received the ‘unsung heroes’ Queens award for Voluntary Service, but they do not receive any government funding, as they rely entirely on donations.”
Here at Boss we are very happy to be supporting this charity, to do our bit we have a donation box and a clothes bank at our front reception in house at Boss if you’d like to donate. You can also give via their website over on: http://www.barnabus-manchester.org.uk/how_you_can_help.html
Finishing this off, check out our Q&A with the woman behind Boss, Debra Burns
What do you love most about Christmas?
Being at home with my lovely family and horses, they even have Christmas lights in the stables!
How do you plan on celebrating?
Start the day with a glass of bubbles, then a Nut Roast and finally playing silly games after a very very late lunch.
Do you have an all time favourite Christmas film?
I still scream with laughter at Home Alone, my sense of humour is very questionable!
Have you been good all year enough for a visit from Father Christmas?
If so, what might he bring you?
I never expect anything, the best thing about Christmas is giving. But if I get some Epsom Salts for bath time I’ll be happy!
What do you wish for in 2019?
The realisation from anyone who doesn’t already know the catastrophic effects of climate change and the willingness to do something about it.
