Instead of spending money on corporate Christmas cards and gifts, we set up an annual Christmas Charity Fund and call on our housing clients and other RPs each year to nominate charities and good causes in their neighbourhoods that would benefit from a donation.
We were inundated with nominations this year - thank you to everyone who got in touch. We’re pleased to be able to donate much-needed money to the following charities and community projects:
Nominated by Salix Homes
Nominated by Leeds & Yorkshire Housing Association
Nominated by Irwell Valley Homes
Nominated by Muir Group
Nominated by Progress Housing Group
Nominated by Your Housing Group
“I was pleased to see so many foodbanks and similar initiatives nominated this year. It’s something we at Croftons are very passionate about, and it’s important we continue to support those most vulnerable, ensuring everyone has access to food and warm clothes – especially at this time of year. This is why three quarters of our charity pot will be donated to such causes this year.” Simon Leighton, Managing Partner.
In addition, we supported clients Plus Dane and Torus with donations to buy Christmas presents, warm clothes and food hampers for those tenants who would otherwise go without, and Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas which was nominated by our very own Catherine Jones.
“I loved the idea of encouraging my colleagues to be a Secret Santa for a disadvantaged child in Greater Manchester by supporting Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas. Plenty of gifts and toys were donated by the team, and the extra £100 from our Christmas charity pot meant I could purchase additional presents to spread the joy even further.” Catherine Jones, Solicitor.
