Our heartfelt thanks to Debbie Goodall and her colleagues at UK Electrical Installations Ltd who have been extremely generous in donating over 15 starter packs to our Redditch supported accommodation scheme Beoley Court in St Georges, following on from the Birmingham Mail's #HomeatChristmas campaign. They delivered these to the project using one of their vans just before Christmas on 22nd December, along with some fabulous prizes for an upcoming event.
Debbie Goodall told us that all of the staff at UK Electrical Installations Ltd generously took part in helping St Basils. Some of UK Electrical Installations Ltd Apprentices are only 18 and they each spent £100 to buy items for St Basils young people! However it was with the help of everyone at UK Electrical Installations Ltd that they were able to collect and complete 15 starter packs, each containing bedding sets, towels sets, pans, crockery, cutlery and other useful items.
St Basils Fundraising Officer Anne Morton, who covers the Redditch area, said: "We really do appreciate the support from all of the staff who’s kindness in wanting to help local young people in need – particularly at this time of year - is greatly appreciated. I think that was an amazing thing that they're young apprentices did and we just want to say thank you as their kind and thoughtful donations are so very welcome to our young people as it means so much to know tthose living nearby are thinking of them. Thanks again!"
