We would like to dedicate special thanks to our charity’s former YMCA Housing Development Manager, Christie Sparrow.
Thanks to Christie’s fantastic efforts of arranging a collection around her local area, YMCA residents have received a wonderful array of food parcels, toiletries and clothes – not to mention the lovely cakes for our keyworker staff team – to help them feel valued during the coronavirus lockdown.
Christie said: “Since resigning from my position of Housing Development Manager at the Y to extend my maternity leave with my second child, I have retrained and now teach Mindfulness Meditation courses. As you can probably guess, I can’t leave Housing behind and once we went into lockdown my thoughts very quickly turned to the residents and the YMCA keyworkers supporting them, so even in a small way I’m glad we’ve been able to help.
“I’m so pleased that our donations are making a difference and will continue to collect for as long as we are able.”
