Sanctuary staff support Torbay residents this Christmas

13 December 2017
Employees from Sanctuary Housing will be supporting Christmas Day dinners

Sanctuary Housing staff in Torbay are helping to make sure residents from all walks of life have a very merry Christmas.

Festive feasts

Employees from the leading housing provider are supporting some delicious dinners happening on Christmas Day itself, aimed at combating loneliness over the holidays and providing a friendly place to spend the day.

The first is a festive feast from the Chelston Action Group at St Peter’s Centre, Torquay, where residents who may otherwise be on their own will be able to come together for a tasty meal.

An event at the Windmill Centre organised by Torbay Community Development Trust will see local residents join up for a ‘Bring and Cook’ meal, where attendees can take along dishes to cook, eat and share together.

Christmas donation

In addition, staff from Sanctuary’s local team are donating £200 of supermarket vouchers to Paignton Community Larder, a newly opened service that gives food parcels to local residents in urgent need.

Lynne Roberts, neighbourhood partnerships manager for Sanctuary, said: “It’s the season of goodwill and we wanted to reflect that by supporting local events and services that offer help to residents at, what can be, a difficult time of the year.”
