Although the past couple of years have proved to be quite tough for everyone, this hasn’t stopped YOU, our wonderful local community, from stepping up and supporting young people who are also facing homelessness.
We have been totally bowled over by the love, support and generosity we have received this Christmas. Whether you donated a shoebox stuffed with Christmas cheer or some much loved festive fare or maybe you donated a Christmas gift or a selection box full of chocolate gorgeousness, every single act of kindness has been well and truly felt and the impact of this continuous stream of heartfelt donations will last much longer than just Christmas.
‘It was a very nice feeling to give out presents that had been donated. The young people felt very happy. Some of our residents don’t have family or loved ones and I felt by giving them something, it connected us and our young people to others, creating stronger communities and helping build a happier society for everyone.’ (Housing Team)
We were fortunate enough to receive donations from many individuals, community groups, businesses and schools. Here are just a few of those wonderful organisations:
- Judgemeadow Community College
- Leicester Grammar School
- Leicester University Student Participation and Engagement
- St Leonard’s Church, Swithland
- The Cedars Academy
- B.A.P.S Charities, Leicester
- Sporting Markfield U8 Foxes
- Keyham Lodge
- Prince’s Trust
- Tree Top Adventure Golf
- Give For Good
- John’s House
We would like to thank absolutely everyone involved in supporting our residents during the festive season – We think you’re all Super Stars!
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all the best for 2022!
