Little Visitors meet Flagship customers
Norfolk-based charity Friend in Deed have brought their team of Little Visitors to two of our housing schemes in Watton and Dereham this month (11 and 13 December).
The Little Visitors project involves parents/guardians taking babies and children of all ages into schemes to spend time with older people. Sessions are run regularly across Norfolk with the primary aims to reduce loneliness, promote kindness and help encourage local communities to support each other.
Kelly Lindsay, Director of Friend in Deed said: “We’ve had a great time this December, our Little Visitors have become Little Elves, spreading festive cheer everywhere they’ve been. It’s been fantastic to work with Flagship Group so that some of their customers could benefit from meeting parents and babies in their local community.”
Callum James, CSR Manager at Flagship Group, said: “It’s great to be able to partner with a local charity and bring some Christmas cheer to our customers.”
Sheila, a resident from Doris Barnes Court in Dereham, added: “It’s great to see these little ones, especially if you don’t get to see your own Grandchildren very often.”
As part of Flagship's Corporate Social Responsibility programme, it is anticipated the support of cross-generational activities will continue in the future.
