We were delighted to attend this year’s Trafford Business Awards and thrilled to win the Community Award 2015, which honours companies that choose to help and support the community through schemes and initiatives that positively impact the local area.
We work tirelessly within our community to change the perceptions and stigmas of ageing. We are committed to leading initiatives to tackle loneliness and isolation in the community; most recently through our WOW guides; which enable elderly people to join in community events. This scheme has become so popular that many NHS organisations also use the guides, to encourage older people to engage with their local community events.
We will continue to work in partnership with local businesses and promote community organisations from all sectors encouraging collaboration and awareness throughout the area. One positive event which we look forward to again this year is our community Christmas dinners that were created in collaboration with Sale Lions, The Life Church & Sale West Community Centre. We understand the importance of building a thriving community, which can therefore seek to help the most vulnerable in society.
We would like to thank everyone in Altrincham and Sale for embracing our campaigns and initiatives to bring the community together, and hope we can continue to work in partnership to further the great work already achieved in our local area.
