Syrian refugee families give us the ultimate thank you after recent ‘Big Lunch’ event

27 July 2018

We are always focusing on our communities and aim to bring our customers together. A recent example of our work in action was the ‘Big Lunch’ event which took place on Saturday 30 June in South Gloucestershire. The event was a fantastic success and helped our customers get to know each other and our teams better.

For the last two years, we have been working on settling in Syrian refugees into our communities and making them feel welcome. Recently a group of our Syrian refugee customers attended this ‘Big Lunch’ event and sent us a letter thanking us for the work that went into organising it and that it made them feel welcome in their local neighbourhood.

They said: “Now our vision for the future is more optimistic; tomorrow will be another beautiful day.

We cannot describe how happy we are and love cannot be written in a few words.”

It is always great to receive such amazing feedback from our customers and we are really proud of our teams for their hard work in achieving such great successes like this one.
