As our weeks in Lockdown roll by, we have been enjoying reading about the wonderful acts of kindness and generosity being shown to our more vulnerable tenants by our colleagues from across the community and voluntary sector. From Easter baskets to food donations, it is clear to see that community spirit is thriving during this difficult time.
A special thank you to the wonderful volunteers from Saint Vincent de Paul, who provided hand sanitiser bags for our tenants at Sperrin Court in Cookstown.
Some Clonard House residents in Belfast have been receiving support in the form of food parcels, from Clonard Residents Association, which have been very much appreciated.
In addition to community support, many of our Sheltered Living tenants have had incredible support from our team of dedicated Scheme Co-ordinators. This team are finding alternative ways to support our tenants despite the restrictions on how they can work
Rosemary McQuaid, Scheme Co-ordinator, provided Easter cards and gift bags, for all the tenants at Drumkeen Court in Ederney. Rosemary also sent all tenants and staff in Lowtherstown Court in Irvinestown an Easter card to let them know she was thinking of them all.
Caroline Monroe is the Scheme Co-ordinator at Sperrin Court in Cookstown. Caroline recently made lunch and treats at her own home, for the 30 tenants at the sheltered living scheme. Caroline delivered each meal by leaving it outside doors, ensuring that everyone at the scheme enjoyed a home cooked meal.
We know that there are many more staff and tenants going above and beyond to show their support at this time, and we would like to express our sincere appreciation on behalf of all our tenants and staff. Now more than ever we are in this together.
