We are immensely proud of our on-going work at Caradoc Hall in Coventry, especially during the festive season. We worked in collaboration with local food banks and charities to help spread some Christmas cheer among tenants, with food and gifts for the children.
A Christmas tree was erected and was adorned with decorations made by the children. Observing strict COVID safety procedures, two Stef & Philips members of staff dressed as Elves, surprising residents by delivering gifts over 16 floors, to approximately 90 children.
Age-appropriate gifts from toys, to board games and educational learning toys, were sourced in partnership with the Midland Langar Seva Society and supplemented by donations from Stef & Philips. Our staff (dressed up as Christmas Elves) worked tirelessly to wrap nearly 100 gifts for the children, using the conference room venue, kindly donated by The Double Tree Hotel, Coventry.
Coventry City Council donated books and creative packs for the children whilst Coventry was in lockdown and recently created a Winter Wander project, which will display pictures created by the families of Caradoc Hall. These are being displayed and illuminated in the windows.
Councillor David Welsh, Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, said: “Once again the combination of private business, charities and Coventry City Council have been able to bring some Christmas cheer to families and children in need. Caradoc Hall provides a home to families and I hope all will enjoy Christmas and the children especially enjoy the presents.”
We would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Georges Mini Mart, Midland Langar Seva Society, Langar Aid, Baby Godiva and Coventry City of Culture Trust for all of the food and gifts donations – this wouldn’t have been possible without their support.
