Supporting good causes and pie deliveries at Progress Housing Group’s independent living schemes
Our Independent Living Coordinators have been supporting our over 55s tenants over the last few months through increased welfare checks, arranging food parcels and dropping off activity packs, as well as supporting them to contact their families remotely.
Last month, the Group’s independent living South Ribble tenants supported a local good cause and benefitted from some sweet treats and baked goods kindly donated from South Ribble Borough Council.
Pie deliveries to Tuson House!
In April, our Independent Living Coordinator, Julie Thomas, gratefully received support from South Ribble Borough Council in the form of deliveries of fresh bread, pies, pasties and cakes for tenants living in our independent living schemes!
Julie says, "Joan, Karen and I delivered to 30 residents at Tuson house and all 50 residents at Northbrook. The packages included a pie, a pasty and a sausage roll as well as a couple of cakes.
"All the residents were really happy with the little food parcels and we're soon hoping to get to Ashwood Court to provide for my residents there as well."
Supporting the Leyland Lockdown Team with food and care packages
Our fabulous tenants at Greenwood Court and Bolton Croft in Leyland raised a wonderful £110 for the Leyland Lockdown Community Help Team, who have been preparing and delivering food parcels and care packages to some of the most vulnerable people in the local South Ribble community during the COVID-19 crisis.
Care packages organised by the community group have also been provided to some of our own independent living and general needs tenants.
