Trent & Dove Spread Festive Cheer
Customer News, News
Colleagues from Trent & Dove have been getting into the Christmas spirit by preparing to deliver bags of festive good cheer to over 165 nominated residents across East Staffordshire.
During the course of the year, our customer facing employees meet many people, both old and young for whom, Christmas can be a really difficult time. This can be for a variety of reasons including financial hardship, family breakdowns, redundancy, isolation and ill health. Or they could simply be a bit down on their luck.
Dawn Maddin, Community Engagement Manager at Trent & Dove said;
“The Christmas bags we deliver contain items of food many of us take for granted over the Christmas period; mince pies, cake, preserves and tinned goods and whilst they don’t cost much, the value they have to our customers is enormous.”
This is the 10th year Christmas parcels have been delivered to nominated customers and support for the initiative is strong with funding and help contributed from Trent & Dove’s Residents Federation and J Tomlinsons, our contractors who carry out our gas servicing.
Steve Kirkland, R&M and FM Managing Director at J Tomlinson, commented: “Once again, we have had the pleasure of supporting Trent & Dove’s annual Christmas Food Bag project, which saw us delivering non-perishable food products and festive treats to tenants across Burton and beyond. The Christmas period can be particularly difficult for many families and individuals, and we hope that this incredible initiative helps to make this time of year a little easier and merrier for some residents.
We wish Trent & Dove and all their residents a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.”
Colleagues freely donate their time to transport and deliver parcels ensuring nominated tenants have something to look forward to come Christmas Eve.
The employees look forward to delivering these bags of good cheer and we hope this small gesture will go a long way to making Christmas merrier than it may otherwise have been.
