Platform Housing Group donated £350 to Kempsey Community Interest Company (CIC) to help them host carols at a local care home and make sure that children in the village get to visit Santa.

Platform’s annual Christmas Kindness Campaign has seen the housing association donate £60,000 to support local events, food banks and charities in their communities to help sprinkle a little Christmas cheer. John Weguelin, Chair of Platform Housing Group’s Board said, “Platform’s Christmas Kindness Campaign supports charities and organisations who aim to build kinder, closer and more connected communities by bringing people together and offering much needed support services. When the cost of living continues to be a daily challenge it’s great that Platform can help spread a little happiness to families and children who need some extra support at Christmas and throughout the year.” Kempsey CIC works in the heart of the local community to bring people of all ages together to enjoy regular social events and activities.

On behalf of Kempsey CIC, Simon Bott said:
“Over the past eighteen months the CIC has been working with Paul from Platform and building a relationship which is invaluable in delivering community benefits to people living in Kempsey. We would not have been able to deliver the inclusive moments of joy at the children’s visits to Santa at our local Christmas Fair or Carols at The Lawns Care Home without Platform’s generous donation and support.”
