Christmas came early today (21 December) for residents living in, Frogmore, Arnon Oak, Hamilton Lodge, Sydenham park Mansions, Mayfield and John Baird Court hostels, as contractors United Living (who provide estate infrastructure and improvement services on behalf of Lewisham Homes), kindly donated 200 festive packages. Donated as part of their social value to give back to Lewisham communities.
Sharing these generous donations amongst our hostel residents on behalf of Lewisham Homes was our very own community relations team! Who hand delivered (in a COVID-19 safe manner) the 200 festive packages to the residents in person.
The packages included a Love to Shop voucher for every family, some Christmas sweets and treats and some essential home items.
Social Value Manager from United Living, Jacquie Noon, said, “I hope that these parcels can bring some joy to families who have faced a particularly difficult year.” A sentiment very much shared by Lewisham Homes.
