Cheekies presents gifts to 10 Christmas Day babies
As part of its long-standing Christmas tradition, Ansa McAl Trading Ltd., presented gifts to ten babies who were born on Christmas Day at city hospitals. To mark the occasion of the twelfth anniversary of the “Cheekies Bundle of Joy”-presentation, Mr. Nigel Dodson, Marketing Assistant, Consumer Goods Division, ANSA McAL Trading Ltd., shared the following poem with all new mothers:
‘What a precious bundle of joy you are, cute from head to toe; You melt our hearts with your sweetness everywhere you go; You’re a special gift this Christmas sent from heaven above; A perfect little angel for all of us to love”.
Mr.Dodson, before making the presentations, said that it was his and the company’s pleasure to celebrate with the new mothers and to actively partake in the season of giving by sharing gifts from Cheekies.
