Each year at Co-op Homes we try to embrace the festive season and spread goodwill. One of the ways we try and do this is to provide and personally deliver Christmas Hampers to our elderly and more vulnerable residents. This year, we're delighted to have received additional support and funding from our management team so are able to extend this initiative to our more elderly and isolated residents of our client co-ops as well.
This is an employee-led initiative, spearheaded by Kathy McNulty from Co-op Homes.
So, over the past few weeks there has been a frenzy of shopping, sorting and storing of hampers by our team of elves to get things ready!
Our employees have volunteered to deliver these surprise gifts in their own time, so please give them a wave if you see them out and about in your neighbourhood. They won't be driving a sleigh and there will be no reindeer involved, but they'll be travelling to Reading in the West over to Maidstone in the East with a smile on their face and a heavy sack of hampers to spread Christmas joy and we've already had some heartfelt thanks from some of the recipients:
