Staff at the Louth branch of Nottingham Building society announced the winners of their Christmas hamper raffle which raised over £100 for local charity, Framework.
The winners Natalie Reynolds and Brenda Medler popped into the branch to pick up their prizes from branch Manager Alan Cope.
Alan said: “We have been really pleased with the response from the local community in helping us raise money for Framework – we have been supporting them for almost two years in which time we have donated over £25,000 so we were delighted when Mrs Medler told us she was donating her hamper to The Community Larder who also work locally with Framework.”
Neil Skinner from Framework said: “Christmas is traditionally a time for giving and these donations will be warmly welcomed by the people we help. This time of year can be a particularly difficult time for the people we support: many of whom have few friends and family networks and will feel especially isolated and lonely during the festive period. We are tremendously gratefully for help like this.
“The support we have received from The Nottingham over the last year and more has had a real impact on our work and we are immensely grateful for it.”
Framework provides housing, support, training, care, resettlement and employment services, opening doors to around 8,000 homeless and vulnerable people across the East Midlands and in parts of South Yorkshire. These include rough sleepers, people escaping domestic violence, care leavers, former prisoners and members of the armed forces and people with drug, alcohol and mental health problems.
