Seddon have supported various community outreach programmes over the Easter holiday period. These services provide vital provision at a time when the deepening economic crisis is profoundly impacting children, youth, vulnerable people and families.
CommUNITY Little Hulton
In partnership with Bridgewater Security, Seddon facilitated an Easter Egg Appeal on behalf of CommUNITY Little Hulton, an organisation that aims to bring the
community together to improve wellbeing.The chocolate eggs were distributed to over 550 children throughout Little Hulton. This was clearly a very worthwhile project that brought a little happiness to disadvantaged families and children at Easter. (NT28)
Seddon also supported the Urban Outreach Easter Lunch Programme distributing free meals to children throughout the Easter school holidays. Approximately 500 meals per day were delivered to a network of community centres and youth clubs throughout the Easter holidays providing a lifeline to hundreds of children across Bolton. (NT29)
Seddon Seniors Easter Gathering
Isolation and loneliness in seniors is also a concern over the Easter holiday season. The effects of isolation can be extraordinary and create health problems, a sense of purposelessness, depression, and a host of other issues. In fact, loneliness is one of the biggest health challenges our country faces and its impact is in line with smoking or obesity (Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, Office for Civil Society, 2019).To help break isolation and provide a network of support, Seddon welcomed over 50 of our retired people to the Bolton office to celebrate Easter with us. An Easter buffet feast was provided together with a company update by Jonathan Seddon, CEO. It was a fabulous gathering, giving people the opportunity to catch up with old friends and colleagues. We also helped our oldest retiree, Arthur Dominican, to celebrate his 104th birthday! (NT27)
