Festive fun with Xmas hampers


An Amber Valley housing association spread some festive cheer across Amber Valley when it delivered Christmas hampers to help tenants through the holiday season.

Futures Homescape Ltd (FHL) delivered 26 festive-themed hampers on Monday, December 23, to recipients nominated by staff.

Young volunteers from FHL’s Voices of Youth Community Rangers were also given the chance to nominate someone who they thought deserved a special Christmas gift. And the youngsters volunteered their time to help Futures staff deliver the hampers, which were packed with essentials and a selection of yuletide goodies, including Christmas pudding and mince pies.

Jenny Ball, of FHL, said: “It is very important to us that we make a difference and it is fantastic to be able to help people out over Christmas, which can be a very challenging time of year.

“Our Voices of Youth Community Rangers were, as ever, really enthusiastic about getting involved with delivering the hampers and a big thank you must go to them for their help.”
