11 Dec Greenaway Foundation
Every Christmas The Greenaway Foundation (which is the charitable side of Greenaway Residential Estate Agents), helps financially challenged families by providing them with all the ingredients they need to cook a two-course healthy Christmas dinner.
This year has been challenging to say the least for everyone and we predict more people will need help this Christmas than ever before. Since the launch of their appeal in 2011 the number of families that have been helped every year has increased. Last year 344 families in the Crawley, Horley & East Grinstead areas received deliveries. This year they predict that they will be helping more than 500 families.
They cannot do this alone and once again they are reaching out to local companies for help. In each delivery made to a family, there are eleven food items ranging from stuffing and oil to chickens and sprouts, what they are asking is for a company to sponsor one food item which will obviously vary in cost. Darren Greenaway, Chairman and Trustee says “As a company owner myself, I do appreciate that some of these items are quite expensive. If you feel this way, but want to help we can have two or even three companies sponsor one item”.
Below are the items which still need sponsoring:-
