Local Business Delivers Christmas Cheer to Extra Care Residents
Residents of Meadow View Court Extra Care Housing Scheme in Wateringbury, received a kind delivery of gifts from local store owner, Kim and her customers.
Kim, who runs vintage and second-hand shop Trash or Treasure in Maidstone, wanted to let the older people amongst the community know someone was thinking of them at this time of year, so she invited her customers to join her in a thoughtful festive mission.
With the help of her customers, Kim was able to collect an abundance of bags full of gifts, including biscuits, jams, chutneys and toiletries, for the residents of the scheme. The delivery also included handwritten some Christmas cards, sending well wishes to the residents.
Kim dropped the gifts off a week or two before Christmas and staff delivered them to the residents on Christmas Eve. They were delighted with their gifts and incredibly moved by the kind gesture.
Jill Bryant, Housing Officer at Meadow View Court said: “We’d like to say thank you to Kim and her customers for thinking of us at this time of year, it really was such a thoughtful thing to do.
“We opened our doors last December during lockdown and for much of 2021, there were restrictions in place, so we haven’t been able to embed ourselves in the community as much as we would have liked. We hope moving forward for 2022 that we can get to know our local community better.”
