Havering residents urged to give out a helping hand this Christmas
RESIDENTS are being urged to give donations for those who need a helping hand this Christmas.
Homes In Havering is asking people to donate non perishable food, new or unused toys, food hampers and festive decorations for their Christmas Appeal.
Resident Involvement Manager, Julie Pocock said: “Please dig deep and contribute to our appeal to help make sure that we all have a happy and enjoyable Christmas.”
Residents are also being asked to nominate people including their neighbours, families and individuals who they think need support, where their donations will go to.
Donations can be dropped off at the Homes In Havering mobile unit at the Light Up Harold Hill event in Farnham Road, Harold Hill on Friday December 3 from 4pm to 6.30pm.
