Charitable Cheer from the Stilwell Partnership !

16 01 2017

This Christmas The Stilwell Partnership took part in the Patrick Parsons Group charity food donations effort with their very own twist!

Anthony Cowey, Infrastructure Director, is a member of Emmanuel Church in Guildford where he became aware of a charity hamper appeal in which donations of food and gifts are given to the Church and the congregation organise them all into individual hampers. Volunteers make up the hampers, decorating each one with festive wrapping and deliver them out to the local community as a Christmas surprise.

Claire Marrow, a member of the Emmanuel Church and a support aid at the local primary school, helped organise the scheme acknowledging families in their local area who are in need. Claire was overwhelmed by the generosity and community spirit, sending the following message:

‘A huge thank you to all your staff who supported our Christmas hamper appeal. Their generosity was amazing and helped to make up the most hampers we have ever had, 56 in total. There were lots of tears of sheer joy as they were delivered and I have received so many grateful messages already. Please find attached some pics from yesterday and will thank you all properly in the New Year.’

Patrick Parsons Group thanked The Stilwell Partnership for their efforts saying:

“Well done to Anthony Cowey and The Stilwell Partnership in Guildford for their kindness and many donations which made the hampers possible. They will have brought joy to each family who received them, giving their Christmas a little more cheer.”
