Easter cheer in housing developments across the central belt

A SCOTTISH housing provider has experienced the act of kindness first hand throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with a spate of donations of Easter treats for tenants.

Bield Housing & Care developments, Crosshill Gardens in Port Glasgow and MacKenzie Court in Grangemouth, have received Easter Eggs donated by a local Co-Op and a homeless charity.

Michelle McKinnon, Development Manager at Crosshill Gardens, said: “We received a donation from the local Co-op, who already do so much for us as a development. They wanted to make sure all of our tenants received a little treat this Easter.

“The store manager arranged for each tenant to receive a chocolate Easter Egg to lift their spirits and spread a little joy at this unsettling time.

“As a development we would like to thank the Co-op for their kind gesture and appreciate all the work they are doing in the current circumstances.”

As all Bield Housing & Care developments have restrictions on visiting which are in line with Government advice, it is gestures like these that are helping older people to have a little bit of hope and cheer during this stressful time.

Lynne Douglas, Chief Executive at Bield Housing & Care, said: “Everyone at Bield Housing & Care would like to thank the Co-op in Port Glasgow and NUCU charity in Grangemouth for demonstrating such kind gestures at this difficult time. It will definitely put a smile on our tenants faces.

“These little treats will help continue to make Easter special for those living and working in our developments – it’s so nice to see the public coming together at this time.”

A designated e-mail address [email protected] and phone number 0131 273 4000 has been set up to deal with queries and questions during the Coronavirus crisis.
