Santander brings Christmas early to local disability charity
15 enthusiastic employees from Santander last week took to the fields of Enham Alamein, near Andover, to volunteer for leading disability charity Enham Trust.
The volunteers – who spent a day with the charity at the beginning of the month – supported the Trust’s Gardening Services Team to prune & prepare Christmas trees ready for the festive season.
The Christmas trees tended to by the team, visiting from a local branch of leading financial services provider Santander, will be sold this Christmas; all funds raised from the sale of these trees going back into the charity’s vital work across the country.
Hannah Leicester, Head of Income Generation, said of the volunteers:
“It was a pleasure to welcome so many passionate volunteers to our main site here in Enham Alamein last week. They did a fantastic job of supporting our gardening team, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their dedication. It’s thanks to the dedication of our volunteers that we’re able to continue supporting people to live their lives with choice, control, and independence.”
Enham Trust currently supports over 7,500 disabled people across the country each year in the cornerstone areas of their lives by providing housing, care, and various employment & skills opportunities to ensure each customer gains independence, choice, and control over every aspect of their lives.
