Friends of the Family has received a £600 donation from Penyards Property Management which will go towards its work supporting children and families across Winchester. Each year, Penyards Property Management chooses a different charity to benefit from its charitable Christmas card scheme – instead of sending Christmas cards, the company donates the money to a good cause.
Friends of the Family was nominated by Director Judith Davis who established Penyards Property Management 28 Years ago. Judith has a strong connection to Friends of the Family as she spent two years volunteering with the charity’s 5s to 13s Project as a befriender.
Judith said: “I have first-hand experience of the excellent work Friends of the Family do in providing support and friendship to children and families who are struggling to cope. We wanted the Christmas card donation to go to a small charity that supports vulnerable people in Winchester and Friends of the Family have been dedicated to this cause for over 20 years.”
Sam Hunt, 5s to 13s Befriending Manager, said: “We were thrilled to be nominated to receive this generous donation. It was a wonderful surprise to hear that Friends of the Family had been chosen to receive the money that would otherwise have been spent on the company’s Christmas cards. We are hugely grateful to Judith for thinking of us and to everyone at Penyards Property Management.”
