Not everyone can have a festive season as easy and joyous as what you see on a Christmas TV advert.
So, we wanted to spread a little festive spirit to some of our customers who we know might need something to give them some Christmas cheer at the end of a difficult year.
Staff packed goodies for some of our customers - chocolate, wrapped children's toys, and a couple other seasonal treats. We really hope this brings a smile to our customer's faces.
We would have loved to do this for all 5000 of our customer's homes - but we made it to around 140 homes where staff thought the customer could do with a little pick me up.
All donations came from our generous suppliers and contractors, companies we work with to make sure you get the service you expect from us. A huge thank you to the below companies for helping us make this day possible.
