On Wednesday 12th December the Beresfords team including some staff from our Maldon branch visited The Lock Tearoom in Heybridge. In aid of Age UK Essex to support and donate Christmas gifts and spread some festive cheer to older people in Essex. Beresfords personally gifted merry Christmas puddings, delectable panettones, giant 100 -500 piece jigsaw puzzles and charming Baileys hot chocolate mugs. Taking part this year was especially important to Beresfords, since we are aware that not everyone is surrounded by family or loved ones at the Christmas period; and helping to change a life is especially rewarding.
Age UK Essex is an independent local charity and have been working to make a difference in the local community to help older people for 30 years. Their aim is to promote the wellbeing of all older people in Essex and to be there to assist vulnerable individuals to live fulfilling and enjoyable lives every day of the year.
Paul Beresford, Chairman/Managing Director, commented: “As a company we actively look to support as many charitable causes as possible throughout the year so we were delighted to take part and donate Christmas gifts to the seniors this year. At Beresfords our involvement with our local community is at the heart of everything that we do”.
Director Terry Holmes said, “It’s great to mark the end of the year with a truly meaningful initiative. It also brings a real perspective to our lifestyles when we consider others whose Christmas sadly is no different to any other day. Doing something like this really encapsulates Christmas.”
