Our thoughts turn to others unable to enjoy or indulge this Christmas in the way most of us will. At this time of year, MRBA tries to bring some cheer to those who we feel could do with it by re-examining recent cases for those we feel deserve a little extra ‘Christmas box’. The amount we give may not be huge, but it may be enough for some to give their children a bit more than they could otherwise afford, or to put a decent Christmas dinner on the table. Our experience shows that it is ‘unexpected’ that is important. It means someone has thought of them, and this gives recipients an extra boost to face the world. This year we will be giving more of our cases a little extra.
