KFC Brings Christmas Cheer to Special Needs Students
The children of the Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary Special Unit will certainly have a “So good” Christmas thanks to the generosity of KFC.
KFC recently hosted a children’s Christmas party at their Hastings, Christ Church restaurant for the members of their Chicky Club and the Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary Special Unit were also invited as the special guests.
Shekelia Barrow, Marketing Coordinator at KFC, said KFC included the special group of children as an extension of KFC’s commitment to the Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and because KFC wanted to extend the Christmas cheer to groups which are often over looked during the holiday season:
“Christmas is for children and a party is an excellent opportunity to brighten the smiles of the children we hold dear to our hearts. Our Chicky Club members are very important to us and we wanted to recognise them at this time of year and let them know to look forward to more from us in the New Year. We also have a wonderful relationship with the Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and thought it fitting to bring cheer to the special unit who inspire us all by meeting their many challenges with great positivity.
Laureen Hinds, Senior Teacher Acting at the Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School, said they were delighted about the special unit being invited to the party:
“KFC have shown their commitment to playing a role in the development of the students at Charles F. Broome and we are happy they have not overlooked our special needs kids. We are especially pleased with their donation of personalized gifts to these students, which is very important to us given their specialized needs.”
Some of the activities at the Christmas party included face-painting and the much loved jumping tent, while children were also treated to their favourite KFC treats, in addition to being given a gift by Santa and taking photographs with their favourite mascot Chicky.
