Easter joy for local charities as United Living celebrates first birthday
National building contractor United Living has been marking its first year anniversary by donating Easter Eggs, soft toys and gifts to local charities and residential homes across the country.
In the Midlands, The Haven Wolverhampton, a refuge accommodation service for women and children affected by domestic violence, and the Well Wolverhampton, an emergency foodbank for those in financial crisis, have each received donations from United Living in partnership with Wolverhampton Homes.
Deliveries were also made to the Children’s Ward at New Cross Hospital. Meanwhile Sumners Farm Residential Home in Harlow has received donations from United Living’s South East office. Senior Resident Liaison Officer Lorraine Pearce organised a kitty with her teammates which raised money to provide the 42 Easter Eggs and other gifts for each resident living at the care home.
In Wales, donations were made to Milestones Trust which supports people with learning disabilities and mental health needs, whilst Ty Hafan Hospice for Children also received contributions from United Living’s Cardiff-based team.
Ian Burnett, chief executive of United Living, said: “It has been a year since United Living was founded, following the merger of the former Bullock construction and United House. During that time, we’ve taken great pride in laying the foundations of our new business which has returned to profit.
“As a leading supplier of new build and refurbishment contacts, we are especially keen that we remain closely knit with our local communities, which remain at the core of everything we do. In celebration of these achievements, we simply hope these humble donations will help to bring smiles to a few faces over the Easter break.”
Tony Tyson-Phillips, construction contract manager for United Living (Wolverhampton) added: “We are proud to support local charities and value the hard work which they do to help families within the region”.
