Local children offer harvest hope to vulnerable Veterans
Children from local nursery schools delivered a whopping 175 food packages to Fulham Veterans charity, Stoll, to benefit vulnerable and disabled Veterans living at Stoll Mansions. Pupils from four nurseries collected a number of items as part of their harvest offering.
Stoll is the leading provider of supported housing for vulnerable and disabled ex-Service men and women. Stoll provides affordable, high-quality housing and support services to over 600 Veterans each year with the aim of helping them to lead fulfilling and independent lives
Nick Shatford, Health and Wellbeing Manager, said: “It’s fantastic to connect with the local community and we’re really touched by the generosity of the children and their families towards the Veterans we work with. Our huge thanks go to Pippa Pop-ins Nursery Schools in Fulham and Kensington for co-ordinating this amazing effort.”
One Veteran, Hamish, was grateful to receive his package: “If I’m honest, I’m struggling financially at the moment. To be given this lovely bag of food, which eases some of the stress and worry of buying food, is a real gift. I’m incredibly thankful to all the children that put this together.”
