Anchor Hanover housing residents indulge in Easter fun
Despite circumstances remaining a little different this year, within our housing locations, Easter remained as important as ever, with both our staff and our residents outdoing themselves to ensure the holiday was a special time for all.
As always, calendars were packed with celebrations, that saw colleagues and residents taking part in a range of Easter raffles and craft activities, as well as indulging in an array of baked goods and all manner of chocolate treats.
Here’s a round-up of news from our housing locations this Easter:
Willow Court, Leicester
Willow Court were surprised with a special delivery of 50 Easter eggs, all donated by the local One Stop shop, with many of the Willow Court residents loyal customers of the nearby branch.
St Paul’s Court, Alnwick
St Paul’s Court lifted lockdown spirits with a COVID-secure Easter raffle, with all funds raised going towards a deserved post-COVID party extravaganza later in the year.
Not to be outdone, our Sandyhurst colleagues delivered bunny pancakes to their tenants, while the residents themselves put together a stained glass window colouring display.
Benford Court, Blyth
It’s important to remember that occasions like Easter are also an ideal opportunity to give back to your local community. In Blyth, a food bank who recently provided some parcels to tenants of Benford Court infirmed residents that they were collecting Easter eggs for less fortunate local families. As a kind gesture, our tenants put together a collection of their own, setting aside 38 eggs.
In a year like no other, ensuring we continue to support residents to live a fulfilled and rewarding life is more important than ever. We’ve been dedicated to that mission for the last 50 years and despite the challenges we’ve all faced this year, we remain committed to lifting spirits and creating smiles.
