Some great work done by so many people in the last few weeks, but most praise goes to Kerry Grandison, form SMBC’s Neighbourhood Services team.
Kerry wanted to do something to provide Christmas cheer for the elderly residents in the borough, so she started a campaign to get donations for hampers so they can be made up and then delivered. This went almost viral with lots of donations so that more than 300 hampers could be made up and then delivered around the borough. Kerry is seen in the photograph with Firefighters from the local Sheldon Fire Station.
To cap it all, pupils from Coleshill Heath Primary School travelled all the way to Long View residential home, Elmdon to sing to residents. They were absolutely brilliant but there was one special resident they sang to, Mrs Mary Stimpson, Solihull’s eldest resident aged 102 young years. The pupils then assisted Kerry in presenting a wonderful hamper to Mary.
Mary can be seen in the photograph with her daughter and some of the school choir.
Two MASSIVE WELL DONES:
Kerry Grandison for her thoughts and endeavour.
Coleshill Heath Primary School – for taking the time and effort to travel so that their choir can sing to residents at Christmas time.
