Residents living in our sheltered schemes were delighted to receive their winter warmer packages.
Our customer empowerment team delivered 120 packages to Wandle residents. The packs contained warm blankets, mugs, puzzle books, socks and packs of biscuits.
It was a team effort, as the bags were packed by fellow colleagues, and delivered by our repair operatives.
This time of year is challenging for everyone, but compounded by the ongoing cost of living crisis, means that many of our more vulnerable residents are most at risk.
All the items were purchased using donations from our partners K&T Heating, Pinnacle, RMA Stewart, Ellesmere Construction and TW Drainage.
“Thank you to our partners for their kind donations, and to the customer empowerment team for making this happen. Wandle is aware of the struggles many of our residents are currently facing, and encourage anyone who needs support to get in touch.”Suzanne Horsley, Executive Director Customer Services
