A housebuilder has helped to spread festive cheer by sponsoring two Christmas hampers for 40 staff at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
Vistry East Midlands has donated £300 to fund the hampers which will provide festive treats for the staff at the hospital who work over the Christmas period.
Emma Bray, corporate fundraiser at Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, said the donation was fantastic news.
“We are so grateful to Vistry East Midlands for kindly sponsoring our staff Christmas hamper appeal,” said Emma. “This generous donation will mean that we can deliver lots of treats to staff across Addenbrooke’s Hospital who are working during this festive period.
“We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Vistry East Midlands for their support in helping us bring a smile to the faces of our wonderful NHS teams.”
Vistry East Midlands – part of Vistry Group which includes Linden Homes, Bovis Homes and Vistry Partnerships – currently has two developments in Northstowe, eight miles north of Cambridge: The Boulevards by Linden Homes, off Stirling Road, and Bovis Homes at Northstowe, off Britannia Road.
Hannah Dorner, sales manager at Vistry East Midlands, said: “As a company, we take our responsibilities to the local communities where we build very seriously. Our developments in Northstowe are directly connected to Addenbrooke’s by the Cambridge Guided Busway and a number of staff from the hospital have bought homes from us, so it is good to be able to show our appreciation for what they do.
“It is a pleasure for us to be able to sponsor hampers so that these dedicated workers can get a few festive treats for Christmas. We all know how hard the staff within the NHS have worked to cope with the tremendous strains caused by the pandemic and how they continue to provide a health service that is the envy of the world.”
