Delivering effective services, enterprising solutions and exemplary homes and communities.
As part of our Christmas Kindness Campaign our fantastic staff have been giving, giving, giving kindness in abundance.
Our teams have given over £250.00 in cash which meant that the organisers, Polly and Stacey, could shop for more items to be included in the hampers for local food banks. Swan / NU living staff from accross all of our offices also donated mountains of food, toiletries and other items.
Stacey and Polly are part of our Income Team and they organised the whole campaign and the deliveries to seven food banks accross Essex and East London in the areas in which Swan works. They delivered to food banks in Bow Church, Newham, Dagenham, Tower Hamlets, Colchester, Chelmsford and Basildon.
Apart from really tired from all of the lifting and carrying over the past few weeks, they said:
"This has been a very humbling experience for both of us. Some of the food banks were run like military operations but they were still excited to receive items they where short on. They were particularly excited about receiving washing up liquid as this is normally forgotten.
Other food banks were much smaller and relied on community donations. When we arrived at Newham Food bank, which was very small, they had families waiting for food parcels but they were extremely low on stock. They were so grateful because our donations were really needed and would be used straight away. It really highlighted how important these food banks are."
Thanks to all of the Staff that donated, your contribution is very much appreciated.
