A local construction company has delivered food and clothes to vulnerable people in Havering. 

Chigwell Group, based in Hainault, collected more than two hundred parcels which have been taken to rough sleepers and people who are isolated in the borough today. 

“Since we entered the coronavirus and the lockdowns, we as a company feel there are a lot of people who are worse off than us and we would like to give back,” said Managing Director, Dean Floyd. 

“All of our staff, from one department, have dedicated their whole time, day and night, going to Costco, buying materials, buying goodie bags, and putting them all together. It has taken hours and hours.”

The Havering Volunteer Centre has helped the company identify those who are most in need.

CEO Shelley Hart said: “It is going to the most vulnerable in our community, mainly the elderly and the people that are isolating, that are low and who have no support. 

“Without the Chigwell Group supporting them, they would have gone hungry this Christmas so we can’t thank them enough for their support.” 

Havering Council is also helping the initiative as there are many people in the borough who need assistance. 

“Havering has the highest elderly population and those on the vulnerable list so it has been extremely difficult over these past nine months making sure that they are looked after, they are fed, and they have medicines,” said Councillor Robert Benham. 

“It has been a military effort from the council, external bodies, charities, and groups.”
