Easter cheer in Bield housing developments across central belt
Bield developments experienced the act of kindness first hand throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with a spate of donations of Easter treats for tenants.
Crosshill Gardens in Port Glasgow and MacKenzie Court in Grangemouth 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, added: “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.”
