Londoners explore the UK with funded coach trips

Hundreds of residents from across Haringey and Hackney have come together in a series of exciting country-wide coach trips.

Over 200 residents, young and old, joined forces to spread the North and East London community spirit across the Great British Isles, thanks to a helping hand from Sanctuary Housing.

Youth clubs, families and older people clocked up many motorway miles to relish all things British – with the Londoners appreciating stops as far as Barry Island in Wales.

One Morningside resident who visited Great Yarmouth, said: “I was so pleased to attend and was looking forward to the trip when I heard about it.

“Great Yarmouth was heaps of fun and I met loads of other residents – mixing with both old and young, it was lovely to be a part of it.”

The national housing provider, part of Sanctuary Group, donated over £3,000 to pull together the jam-packed travelling programme in a bid to build stronger links with residents and boost the local neighbourhood.

Sanctuary’s partnerships officer, Toby Moore, added: “We were thrilled with how successful our trips were and it was great to hear that everyone who attended had a fantastic time.

“Sanctuary is always looking for more ways to bring neighbourhoods together where we operate to benefit our residents and from the feedback we received, we definitely did!”
