A Preston cleaning firm, helped to spread a bit of festive cheer by delivering luxury food hampers to a host of Contour Homes residents.

Getting into the true spirit of Christmas, owner of Specialised Cleaning Services, Sarah Southworth personally delivered the hampers to the residents, who included people living alone, those who are vulnerable and, as a thank you, to those who regularly give back to the community.

Sarah said: “As a business, it’s important to us that we give back to the community and Christmas is the perfect time to do just that.

“Donating the hampers, for us wasn’t so much about giving someone a material gift, but about making everyone feel involved in the community during this festive season.”

The team visited 15 residents around the Preston area in total, including Bill Venables and brother and sister, Daniel and Helen Walmsley who said: “We were thrilled when Sarah knocked on the door.”

The hampers were packed with cheese and biscuits, tinned ham, chocolates, a Christmas pudding and wine.
